After some technical difficulties, we are finally back to the blog! The 6th Annual State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop is coming to a close and it's been great! This was our sample, made with the charm squares of Bonnie Blue Basics and Backgrounds - hoppers collected a charm square at each participating shop. For a list of all shops visit the shop hop page of our website, or go to the new hop website, We also have a great blog there.

We are happy to annouce another class with Susan Carlson here at Mariner's Compass (image above). Susan will join us on Saturday June 6th for "Something's Fishy", a class in her "no-rules, freestyle approach" to quilting. You will look at fabric in ways you haven't before. Class is 9-4 and costs $90. Space is limited, so if you're interested, call ASAP.

Mariner's Compass is currently the only retailer north of Connecticut to carry the AccuQuilt GO! personal sized die-cutting machine. I am amazed at the response to this product! It's a great way to cut more accurately! You've seen it in all the magazines, now you can see it in person. Stop by for a demo or visit to see a video of the machine. We are trying our best to keep everything in stock - I've sold two machines this week already and had to re-order. If we don't have it, it's coming! If you like the idea of cutting but not owning the machine, you can come and rent our Studio machine and cut as much as you like. We'll demo that machine for you too!

Hope to see you soon in downtown Bath - this weekend is Mayfair, our city wide yard sales and fun events downtown. Get specifics at . Happy Quilting!
