Dear Quilting Friends,
It’s been a crazy busy few weeks! Shop Hop, Quilt Inn-ers, Spring Quilt Camp, more Quilt Inn-ers, and a Guild Presentation, all pretty much back to back events. Whew! Now time to get in gear for Rangeley’s summer season.
Our May and June hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 10 ~ 4. We will be open on Sunday the 28th of Memorial Weekend and closed on Monday the the 29th.
If you are traveling from afar to visit us PLEASE check OUR webpage at www.threadsgalore.com for any changes in our hours. Do not rely on “google”.
MAINE QUILTS 2017
NEW DATES ~ Mark your calendar! Maine Quilts 2017’s 40th Anniversary Show is Thursday, July 27 thru Saturday, July 29th at the Augusta Civic Center is Augusta Maine. Over 500 quilts will be on display, from Antique to Contemporary to Judged, along with several Special Exhibits. And don’t forget the Merchants Mall ~ we will be there in Booth #5! Hope to see you there!
SPRING QUILT CAMP
The Rangeley Inn and staff did a wonderful job of accommodating 28 quilters for our Spring Quilt Camp with Instructors Michelle Hiatt and Dan. Quilters from California (2), New York State, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Maine stitched the weekend away in the spacious, well lit Kennebago room from Wednesday noon thru Sunday noon. Take a look at some of the accomplishments of the weekend here.
Spring Quilt Camp 2018 is already in the planning stages, dates are
May 2 ~ 6, 2018. We will have that info ready by mid-July.
FALL QUILT CAMP 2017
We have only FOUR openings left for our Fall Quilt Camp. The Quilt Camp Package includes all instruction, lodging, meals and snacks, door prizes and gifts. We often hear “someday I will join you” ~ well, someday is here! 2018 will possibly be our last year of Quilt Camps, so plan accordingly!
By the way, did you notice where our Quilt Campers traveled from? Kinda comical sometimes when customers tell us we are too far away for them to attend our events and we find out they live less than three hours from here. Just saying…..
We have recently received two wonderful lines of fabric ~ both lines were a hit with our recent Quilt Inn-ers and Campers.

When you order from us online we ship USPS Priority Mail because we then have a tracking number ~ doesn’t matter if it just one pattern etc. If you would like us to ship regular First Class Mail YOU need to let us know in the “comments” and we will adjust your payment accordingly.
Dan has been cleaning, sorting and organizing resulting in the need for a Garage Sale. Check out Dan’s Ramblings for more info.
