Hello to all our wonderful customers! Boy have we been busy working hard to get this new store ready! While never perfect we are getting close and are happy to announce our new open date and hours of operation at our new location in Hollis Center, Maine. Please also note that we have a new super fun class announcement so look for that too!!!

Our New Open date is: Wednesday, March 29th!

Our New Spring Hours Starting March 29th are:

Wednesday: 10:00 to 4:00

Thursday: 10:00 to 4:00

Friday: 10:00 to 4:00

Saturday: 10:00 to 4:00

We will be closed Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays each week.

Our Grand Opening

For Wednesday the 29th through Saturday April 1 we will be having several daily drawings for gift certificates and some other goodies made by us!

We are so looking forward to being open again and are anxious to show off the new digs! I want to be candid with all of you! The store is cozy and fun but not huge like the last two versions of Camp Wool. All merchandise is on one level and we are handicap accessible. However, bathroom facilities and our classroom are located on our second level and only accessible via stairs so please plan accordingly when you plan on visiting. This is a 100-plus-year-old building so it has the usual quirks! Because the store is smaller, we may have to limit the number of people in the building at any one time. While I do not anticipate this being an issue most days our opening first few days may entail a wait if we get too many people at once! I just want you to have full disclosure just in case!!! Our opening day on Wednesday may get hectic so just plan accordingly and you might need to bring an extra dose of patience that day!!! It will be worth it!!!

We are working quickly on getting some new and fun classes lined up along with our usual compliment of beginner classes. Know that we will be posting soon some of those new classes especially as we get closer to our open date. We do, however, have one super fun never offered before Tie Dye Purse Class taught by Mary Delano. Take a look as we have two class dates for that one and I expect it to fill fast!!!

Sorry that the communication has been sparse! The move just has taken longer than expected but we are almost there, and I am so looking forward to seeing everyone again, laughing, catching up and just having fun and settling into a routine again!!!

Take care for now and we look forward to seeing you soon!!!

Big Hugs!

LeAnn, Mark and Crew!!!

Hello from Camp Wool!

It has been a couple of months of some extremely hard work and a few setbacks. Old man winter was kind in the beginning but of late has conspired against us. We have had a few trials with ice storms, frozen pipes, etc. that have put us weeks behind in our goals towards reopening. On a positive note, we have made some very good progress and have all the merchandise moved. However, as you may know, we have A LOT of stuff and getting it all arranged is a big undertaking. With final repairs and upgrades still underway by tradesmen, I have no way to estimate an open date just yet. What I can tell you is we are aiming towards mid to late March. I wish we could open sooner, but our old bodies are not able to do as much for as long as we used to!

I want to thank those of you that have stopped by or called to give words of encouragement and support. Also, it's just a thrill to know that so many of you remember us and are anxious to come back. I am calling this my last and final aging in place store! Not too big, not too small but just right. I really think you will like this new version of Camp Wool.

We are working on picking up some fun new merchandise and we are well stocked with wool and cotton and soooooo many cute projects! I hope by the end of February to announce our grand opening date! In the meantime, hold on, sew away and with the first breaths of spring, we should have a new and exciting version of Camp Wool waiting for you!

All my best to you! Be safe, be warm, seek peace by doing!!

Upstairs we have a two room classroom with bathroom all ready for classes!!! Can't wait!!!

Hmmmmmm. These might be some new wool purses'll have to wait and see!!!!

Well it's here ..... our last day in Milbridge! Sad day yet we are really getting excited to get the new store ready for business! Building needs a little bit of work which we will be doing over the next month or so and then we will move in the merchandise. I know you are wondering when we will be open but I just don't know yet. Just a few too many variables (weather being a big one) to know when we will reopen. My best guess is late February. I will keep you all fully apprised as our journey evolves and let you know as I know!

In the Meantime (i.e. During the month of December)!

We will be able to process phone orders including gift cards, merchandise sends etc. You can reach me by simply leaving a message at our Milbridge store at 207-546-2647. There may be a slight delay in calling you back, but I will check voice mail each day. Also, we will be working at the Milbridge store off and on starting the 2nd week in December. If you see the lights on or if you know you are passing by you are welcome to stop by. Merchandise will be moved gradually to avoid twice moves! You can also reach out to me via e-mail at Please note that is a new e-mail address for me. If we have corresponded in the past, my prior e-mail no longer works. I will not have access to e-mail the first week of December so please call me at the store instead and leave a message.

Next week I will be working on getting new store phone numbers etc. As soon as I have this I will publish when the new phone numbers will be live. In the meantime, if you are looking to make plans for a visit here is our address so you can plan your route!
