Hello to All!
Well, we are finally warming up and summer is just around the corner! Yeah! After doing two shows I can tell you it has been great to see people again and seeing all the fun projects people have been working on over the winter months!
Here at Camp Wool we have stocked up on some great wools and probably the best selection of cottons ever! Not to mention at least a dozen new applique samples and a new rug pattern in support of Ukraine. We hope you can pay us a visit over the summer!!!
Covid numbers unfortunately are too high now to do large group classes. However, I will be happy to teach one to one and/or small groups that are used to being together in rug hooking, punch needle or wool applique. I know there is a lot of debate on vaccinations and I fully respect everyone’s decision. However, I have proven despite vaccination to be susceptible to Covid and must take the stance to require vaccination or a recent (last 48 hours) negative test in order to attend class. Simply call me at the store and we will look at calendars to make arrangements! Masks during class will be based on mutual decisions at time of class. I am still looking at hosting other teachers over the summer but nothing has been scheduled yet. I will keep you all updated on that front over the next month!
Camp Wool Will be Vending Again in late July!

Group Class Room Reservations!
As a reminder, we have a wonderful spot for groups to reserve (other than Wednesdays). We have lowered the fee to $5.00 per person per day with 100% going to local animal shelter. Many folks have reached out to me to stop by! We’d love to have you. Just give me a call at the store to discuss dates.
The Red Barn Motel remains an excellent option if you wish to stay overnight. If you book on line remember to put in Camp Wool in the reservation and get an additional 5% off your room rate. Note: They already offer discounts when you book on-line! They are a very pet-friendly establishment. Also nearby is Ocean Spray Cottages in Harrington check them out as well as many VRBO options in and around Milbridge!!
Finally I wanted to mention that my e-mail has not been working over the last month due to computer problems. If you need to reach me, please call the store! I hope you all have a fantastic summer and I hope to see you in the near future!!
