    Enjoy your trip...I love Maine!
    Stopped at knights on a quilting trip and it was really nice. There is Mainly Sewing right by the wiscasset bridge, and in Nobleboro on Route one, and quilt Divas in Rockland. If you google quilt shops in Maine you can get directions. Country Creations on Rte 32 in Jefferson.

    Yes, On Board Fabrics in Edgecomb, Alewives in Damariscotta and Mainely Sewing (Nobleboro) are all within 30 minutes of each other and like all quilt shops, each have a personality of their own and worth visiting. I am fortunate enough to live in this area and frequent each of them and their staff is helpful. I have also enjoyed some of their classes.

    Enjoy our beautiful state. ‎

    Try Quilt Essentials in Auburn Maine - a quilt/yarn shop. Wonderful fabric, wonderful owners. Lots of neat ideas on display.

    Here is a link to quilt shops listed on the Pine Tree Quilters Guild (The Maine Guild) web site:

    http://www.mainequilts.org/quilt_shops.htm

    All of the fabric shops in the above replies are wonderful. Another great shop is not exactly on the coast, but a short distance off I-95 in Madison, Maine. It is called The Fabric Garden and this place is unbelievable. It is a small building but the amount of fabric they have in there rivals any of the larger shops and is fabulous. If you are into reproduction fabrics be sure to go to the Busy Thimble in Litchfield. She specializes in fabric from the 1800's and has hundreds and hundreds of bolts. Another small building but you will be amazed when you get inside. When I lived in Maine, up until a year and a half ago, these were to of my favorite place to go, other than to Marden's, for deals of course.

    PS: Maine has a wonderful quilt show every year the last weekend in July. 300-500 quilts, nationally known teachers and fabulous vendors from all over the country. It is in Augusta (the capital) in the air-conditioned civic center.
