sales, swaps and celebrations at alewives fabrics!

Maine Quilts: Thursday, July 24 through Sunday, July 27 at the Augusta Civic Center The annual Maine Quilts Show is the pinnacle of the summer quilting season! An event created over a decade ago by Maine's Pine Tree Quilt Guild, Maine Quilts is a quilt show on a nationally recognized scale. Hundreds of quilts will be on display at the Augusta Civic Center, and there will be loads of vendors selling the latest fabrics, books, patterns, notions and more. If you've never been to Maine Quilts, check out their website and facebook page. Alewives Fabrics will be there: this year we're showcasing our take on the super white hot miniature quilt trend. Be sure to see our "Wall of Minis!"
