Quilt Trip in Sanford Maine: Marsen's, Maine Sewing Machines & Kathie's Quilt Shop

One of the secrets of stay­ing Mar­ried for 25 years is remem­ber­ing the per­son you’re mar­ried to.

Wednes­day I took my wife north San­ford Maine on a belated moth­ers day to visit fab­ric stores. she is a quil­ter and noth­ing gets a quil­ter hap­pier than fab­ric stores:

We started at the Main Chain Mar­dens. The loca­tion appeared to be an old Bradlees (all the shop­ping carts had the Bradlees logo that I hadn’t seen in over a decade).

While in gen­eral the prices at the store were pretty good (I pur­chased a half dozen pairs of read­ing glasses as I con­stantly lose them at half the price I would have paid else­where) accord­ing to the wife the fab­rics, while avail­able in quan­tity at rea­son­able prices were not any­thing special.

I had noticed San­ford Sewing Machines on the way to Mars­dens while my wife thought it was just a repair place I fig­ured we should stop in and she was glad we did. While their pri­mary busi­ness is the sale and repair of sewing Machines they had a fair fab­ric selec­tion and my wife was rather pleased at the visit find­ing fab­ric she really loved.

And as the quilt­ing com­mu­nity is really a share and share alike type of crowd they directed us to Kathie’s Quilt shoppe a few miles down the road which was the high­light of DaWife’s day.

And fab­ric to make my wife’s day. I noticed a par­tic­u­lar pat­tern that really caught my eye called the Scrappy Trip Quilt

If the quilt shop is a good invest­ment in a mar­riage I sug­gest that dat­e­chguy is a great invest­ment in news and information.

And all I ask is $300 a week to keep the fires burning.

If you think that’s a good invest­ment con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar below.

One of the secrets of staying Married for 25 years is remembering the person you’re married to.

Wednesday I took my wife north Sanford Maine on a belated mothers day to visit fabric stores. she is a quilter and nothing gets a quilter happier than fabric stores:

We started at the Main Chain Mardens. The location appeared to be an old Bradlees (all the shopping carts had the Bradlees logo that I hadn’t seen in over a decade).

While in general the prices at the store were pretty good (I purchased a half dozen pairs of reading glasses as I constantly lose them at half the price I would have paid elsewhere) according to the wife the fabrics, while available in quantity at reasonable prices were not anything special.

I had noticed Sanford Sewing Machines on the way to Marsdens while my wife thought it was just a repair place I figured we should stop in and she was glad we did. While their primary business is the sale and repair of sewing Machines they had a fair fabric selection and my wife was rather pleased at the visit finding fabric she really loved.

And as the quilting community is really a share and share alike type of crowd they directed us to Kathie’s Quilt shoppe a few miles down the road which was the highlight of DaWife’s day.
