Road Trip to Fiddlehead Artisan Supply

Belfast, Maine

A few weeks back, a quilting friend and I decided to go see the new quilting/artisan supply store in Belfast, Maine.  It was the perfect day–pouring rain.  We looked forward to seeing the store, having a warm and cozy lunch at Chase’s Daily, and shopping in the Belfast Coop.  As predicted, we had a wonderful time.

Fiddlehead Artisan Supply is a terrific addition to our local quilting scene.  How many people have access,within 45 minutes, to so many good quilting stores:  Fiddlehead in Belfast, Nancy’s just outside Belfast, Quilt Divas in Rockland, Mainely Sewing in Nobleboro, and Alewives in Damariscotta  Mills.  Each of these stores is very different from each other.  We have nearly as many really fabulous yarn stores as well.  Truly, I live in an area rich with fiber arts materials.

Fiddlehead carries a unique variety of items.  Yes, there’s fabric–both quilting and decorator–but also other, electic goods, like fabric paints and unique ribbons.  There’s a nice book and pattern section as well.  And, they are selling consigned quilts.

When my sister visited this past summer, she thought our little towns were very European in nature.  I agree with her, and I think that’s part of why I like New England so much.  Here’s what the street scene looks like where Fiddlehead is located:

Here’s what you see when you go inside the door:

Here are some of the unique ribbons:

And, Fiddlehead has ALL 500 embroidery colors:

Makes you want to start a new project, doesn’t it?
