    I love Marden's. They do not sell on line. They are a Maine chain and buy surplus but also have good suppliers for things like fabric. They sell everything from soup to nuts, furniture, clothing, dishes the list goes on & on. You never know what you will find at a Mardens.
    I stock up and bring fabric south in the winter as it is so expensive down here. Headed back to Maine tomorrow. Mardens here I come.

    That's a good idea, and maybe we could vary the location too so more people could join us and not have to go too far.

    Hey bucksprt: the sun is shining, the grass is greener, daffs are blooming and it's spring finally. Have a good trip back. Barb

    Marvelous store with many name brand fabrics. Their fabric department is growing each year.

    Yes, I've been to Mardens many times. They happen to be a very good drapery lining account of mine. A couple of years ago, they made the decision to really enlarge their fabric department in all their stores. If you're looking for bargains, definitely make Mardens one of your stops when visiting Maine, and be prepared to spend some time there.

    Happy Scissoring,

    I live about 10 minutes away from the one in Brewer and I am there way too often! I went over yesterday to pick up material for a pillowcase, to match a QOV quilt that I made, and left with a cart full of fabric.

    I have never been to the store in Sanford but I do make several trips a year to the ones in Ellsworth and Waterville. Last summer I went to the one in Lewiston and the new one in Scarborough. While a lot of the fabrics are duplicates you can always find a few treasurers at each one that the others don't have.

    With the price of fabric, if I didn't have Marden's to shop at I wouldn't be able to make as many charity quilts. They are big supporters of 'Project Linus' and for every quilt you turn in to them you get 3 free fat quarts plus get your name put in for a gift certificate drawing in July.

    Like my husband says, ' My quilting and my fabric makes me happy and that's all that matters.' Anyway, it could be worse, I could be down at the local Casino filling up slot machines with my money!
