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!!

Wool, wool and more wool!!! Getting ready!!

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!

Hello All!

What a pleasure to see everyone in Rochester, NH at the Cocheco Quilt Show this past weekend!! Such a well-run show with beautiful quilts and wonderful vendors!! If you have not attended in the past, it runs every year and is just a great event!!!

Time seems to be flying and winter will soon be upon us, so my thoughts are now fully directed to maintaining a fun shopping experience here in Milbridge, ME while planning for the move to our new location in Hollis Center, ME! I have a few updates to share for the dates and hours we will be open and final close date for this location!

Hours and Dates of Operation for the Month of November

We will be open from 10:00 to 3:00 PM during the month of November. Daylight gets shorter and my eyes are not what they used to be so we will be closing an hour earlier in the month of November. The one exception is Wednesday, November 23. We will be closing at 1:00 PM that day in advance of Thanksgiving. We will be open every Wednesday through Saturday in November except Thanksgiving Day.

Final Close Date for Our Milbridge, ME Location

Our final close date for the Milbridge location will be Thursday, December 1. We will close at 3:00 that day. After that date, we will begin the final updates to our new building and move of merchandise. We will likely have some ability to mail merchandise while we are closed. I will post new contact information for the new store as soon as it is in place where you will be able to reach out to us should you need something! Continue to monitor our website and Facebook for important updates as our move progresses!

Please note we will continue to discount antiques and move fixtures so there are some great bargains to be had on some fun items. We are now offering 40% of antiques and 25% all cross stitch patterns. Cotton bolt fabric is also 20% off! We also continue to get in new patterns and wool so come in when you can for a final look while we're here up North!!

Take care and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

Happy Holidays!!
