Thank you for a fun summer!

Alas the inaugural year of the Maine Yarn Cruise has come to an end.  We thank the 1,000+ participants who wandered around the state enjoying all the fiber fun.  We at Mother of Purl enjoyed meeting all the new people who came to visit us from near and far.  We learned a lot from you.  Watch for the 2nd annual Maine Yarn Cruise next summer!
