Cotton Weeds Quilt Shop - Freeport, ME

No matter how tough times are, a little light breaks through. I've worked insane hours lately for our system rollout, and was shipped off to Maine to train our satellite office. Back in Maine after a six year absence - with time off for good behavior!

When not training, I've had a glorious time geocaching, site seeing, and hitting a quilt shop or two with my BFF Lisa. Today's adventure brought me to Cotton Weeds Quilt Shop in beautiful Freeport, Maine!

541 U.S. Route #1, Ste 12, Freeport, Maine 04032

 Lisa leading the way!

 Lots of embroidery patterns from Gail Pan Designs, Hatched & Patched, Bareroots, and Bird Brain Designs. Piles and piles of patterns.

  Clean, well-lit, with samples everywhere. On every counter are notions and do-dads. Picked up some Roxanne needles and Redwork (FriXion erasable red gel) pens.

 Samples and fabric collections. Lots of batiks!  

 Tons of bag patterns and shop samples.

And don't forget to go upstairs for classrooms and machine quilting! You can take a class and then rent the machine by the hour. 

Lovely shop with some good friends behind the counter. After spending some hard earn money there, take a quick jaunt up the road to Freeport, Maine. Freeport is the home of L.L. Bean, the Mangy Moose, and many, many outlet stores.

Happy travels!


  1. lovely quilt shop..........good to see some Aussie designs there.........

  2. Looks like a gorgeous shop Elisa. A good patchwork shop needs to be inspiring, as well as well-stocked!

  3. I was so happy that you had the time off for good behavior! thank you so much for showing me geocaching too. I can see a whole new outlook on motorcycling now! It was great seeing you and spending time with you. I was amazed that we could fall back into the comfort zone with each other after all these years.

  4. I'd love to go there! The quilt shop yes, but I've never been to Maine and I've always wanted to go.

  5. It's so nice to hear that you returned to Maine and had a wonderful time. It looks like Lisa really showed you the best of the best! Cottonweeds is fabulous and soooo close to me. It's a wonderful quilt shop with great owners and staff. Sorry to miss you during your visit, make sure to tell me if/when you're coming again.


I'd love to hear from you!
