    Just got back from Marden's in Waterville and they just got in a huge selection of Free Spirit fabric, many different designers and patterns and all for only $2.99 a yard. So if you live near a Mardens check it out. Cause as you Mainers know "you should of bought it, when you saw it at Marden's" :lol:

    I love those commercials. I was at the Marden's in Lewiston a few weeks ago, great fabric selection at a great price.

    There are a few shops but not as good as the ones in NY State that I go to when I visit my friend.

    We have a new one in Bar Harbor. She is just starting out and doing an excellent job thus far. Right in the center of town too. Good for the winter!

    I do a lot of buying of patterns online also plus I have an extensive library of books with patterns - much more than I can do in the time The Good Lord will allot me on this earth because I am 71.

    I will pass everything on to my older daughter.

    Hi! There is a Marden's in Ellsworth, about 18 miles from here. They have a lot of fabrics also.

    We are celebrating our 47th anniversary in November!

    I live in Massachusetts, just a short 1hr. 20 mins. from the Sanford Marden's! We make a group car trip frequently and have introduced many others to this quilt fabric bonanza - Kathy's Quilt Shop in Sanford is a must see place too for any additional must haves.
    Also visited the new shop in Bar Harbor in June - a great addition to the area!

    You are right about the new quilt shop in Bar Harbor. It is called Fabrications. Right in town across from the P.O. She is so very kind, pleasant, patient and helpful. She also will try to find anything you need that she doesn't have in the shop!

    I think she will go far with this shop. She also carries scrapbooking materials in another room there.

    I love her selection of magazines and books also. I believe she will be my main source, especially in the winter.

    Yea! Glad to hear there is a shop on MDI. Will look to forward visiting it when I next visit Bar Harbor. I will also have to check out this Marden's. I assume there are several throughout Maine. Do they have a website?

    I was told that the Marden's in Ellsworth will eventually move to where the KMart used to be. We now have a super KMart right across from Home Depot. Also Lowes is on the other side of Rte 3. Very convenient. We heard rumors and are hoping for The Gap, Old Navy and Kohls in the big area by KMart also.
    That would be wonderful to not have to travel to Bangor for some of the bigger things. :D

    Ladybugquilter I just got back from Marden's. I didn't find any Free Spirit yet but they said they have a ton of fabric waiting to unload.
    I did find some Maywood Studio flannel for $2.99

    So anyone living close to Lewiston, Maine
    You need to go to Marden's

    thats a great find justquilting. I have always wanted to make a flannel top and what a way to be able to do so cheaply. I might just see a trip to lewiston in my future:)

    I am going to the Rumford Marden's on Monday, then the Lewiston one that following Friday. Hoping to find some goodies while there. Hubby will be with me on Monday, and he always says" wish you would use what you have before you buy more" lol.
