This shop is not to be missed if you are anywhere near Bangor.
Where shall I start. The selection of fabrics was large and high quality. Batiks, juvenile prints, flannels, wide backing cottons plus many full lines of brand name cottons. All fabrics were neatly displayed with coordinating lines of similar fabrics. Patterns, notions, batting and display samples were plentiful. This is one of the cleanest and brightest shops I have ever been in. What I liked most was that nothing was crowded and cluttered. The store occupied a large square footage and it was used wisely but not jammed full. Prices were comparable to other shops.
The shop is a Bernina dealer and had a large number of machines displayed. There were quite a few customers quilting; not sure if it was a class or open sewing but from the sounds they were having a great time. I was given a newsletter that listed many classes for the coming month.
When I was checking out (yes I did purchase a few yards of batiks)I got to talking with the clerk Lois. Lois happened to be the mother of the two owners; her daughters. She was so proud telling me, rightfully so, how they were having the store's 6th birthday this week and of the sales and raffles. So I put an entry in for the Bernina 330 giveaway; boy would I love to win that! Plus every customer got a surprise bag of goodies in honor of the birthday. I got a candy bar, a bobbin storage tube and a fat quarter.
So I recommend this shop if you are ever in the Bangor area and if you are a local I envy you. Remember to patronize your local shops wherever you live so they can continue to exist.
