CLOSED FOR A WEDDING
The shop will be CLOSED on Saturday, September 26 while we attend the wedding of our niece Kelsi and her soon to be hubby Luke. Those of you on our Facebook page may remember the contest Kelsi entered to win a wedding dress from Inspirations Bridal & Formal Wear, Inc of Conway, NH. Thanks to those of you that "LIKED" Kelsi & Lukes story to help her win the dress of her dreams! I had a sneak peak of the dress she chose and can’t wait to see it on her. Stay tuned for October’s newsletter where I will share a picture! Fun Fun!

QUILT CAMPS Fall 2015 ~ our 15th year
We are looking forward to having Bonnie Hunter back in Rangeley for our October 15 ~ 18th Quilt Camp Weekend at the Country Club Inn. Bonnie was here 3 years ago and October 2015 was the next available time that we could get her back! She is one busy gal!

QUILL HILL Make sure to include Quill Hill in your foliage travel plans. The turnoff is just 7 miles from Threads Galore, then a short 12 minute drive to the summit where a 360 degree view of the Western Mountains awaits you. And if you would like assistance identifying the mountain peaks you are seeing there is an APP you can get for your phone called "PEAKS". Enjoy!
