I thought I would summarize some of my exciting times while on my rug hooking vacation with friend and fellow hooking enthusiastic Marguerite Poirier.

Our first stop was Searsport Rug Hooking Verona Island Maine, just outside of Bangor.
Having already met and dealt with Julie and her Mom Chris, I knew I was for friendly welcome and service.
The shop is in a round house and is chock-full of wool,  patterns, linen and beautiful rugs! When you walk in it is like the heavens open and say "AAhhhhhh!"
Where willpower remains outside the door and you emerge into these delights without regret! Oh how I let loose in there!
Searsport has 103" linen! Yes 103 inches that is 8 1/2 feet WIDE. t always suggest to buy this linen in 1 1/2 yds increments as you can get 3 - 34 x 52" pieces in it.
I ordered  my Kat's Garden pattern that I have been wanting for years! I finally took the plunge! 

When we left and I came out of my wool induced trance I peered into where the backseat once was and seen yard upon yard of luscious wool! Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. My friend Marguerite then reminded me that we were stopping back on the way home to pick up the multiple patterns that were ordered....and linen...and aprons...and well you got the story.

Thanks so much Searsport for all you do! These gals have worked hard to supply us with all our needs, even taking their shop with them to Florida in the winter.

  1. There is something about wool that puts people into a frenzy, all right. I missed getting there when we were down. Keep on your journey and take us with you, always. Shirlee
