Hello to All Our Wonderful Customers!!

Well, we are three weeks from opening and having so much fun seeing so many familiar faces and enjoying meeting so many new recruits to Camp Wool too!!!! Now that we have our feet under us at the new location, we are starting to post more classes so keep your eye out for something that you might like to learn!! Just give us a call at the store if you're interested. Please note that my web person is taking a well-deserved break, so I won't be making any new posts till early May! In the meantime, I wanted to update you on a few fun things with one gentle reminder!

New Wools for Spring have arrived!!!

We just got in a large shipment of wools, and I can honestly say I don't think we've ever had a better selection in the store at one time!!

New Cottons!!!

We've just received some wonderful new cottons as well. I often hear from customers that we have a great variety of cottons you won't find elsewhere! I really enjoy looking for fun prints and patterns that I think work lovely into projects. If you are a quilter, come in and take a look! I think you will enjoy the look!!! Note: We always have an in-store special Buy 5 ½ yard precuts get the 6th for free!!!

Open Sews on Hold/Scheduling Groups!

We are still working on some final unpacking, so we are not quite ready for open sews but if you want to have your group come and stitch for the day, we are taking reservations. For a $5.00 per person donation to our local animal shelter you can come with your group and spend the day!!! Call to reserve.

Teaser - New Applique Project Class with Deb Beudreau of Rustic Country Handcrafts

We don't quite have all the details worked out at the time of this writing, but Deb is designing a custom design for Camp Wool where you will have a wonderful opportunity to learn her methods of embroidery/wool applique with an emphasis on using embellishments, found/one-of-a-kind lace, buttons and more. This will be a one-day class and targeted dates are Friday, June 2 or Saturday, June 3. If you are interested in learning more and getting put on a priority list, please call the store and we will get you more information soon!

Feeling a Little Under the Weather??

We are a fun cozy shop and while windows can now be opened (yeah) germs are still amongst us! If you're feeling that itch or a cough coming on, please visit with a mask and/or free masks at the door if you need one!

Take care and hoping for a healthy happy spring for all!

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!

Wednesday: 10:00 to 4:00

Thursday: 10:00 to 4:00

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!!!
