We enjoyed visiting this shop first on our day trip to Eastport. It offers quality fabrics and yarns. The young lady also helped direct us to a coffee shop and bakery just down the street. The historic district seems to be reinventing itself.

If you want to see fabulous band made quilts, this is the place to visit. Friendly people, quality items available and a pleasant place to just stop and look. If you need a quilt, this is the spot. Different sizes with exquisite craftsmanship.

This little shop offers a wonderful selection for this small town. The fabrics are stylish, unique, and there is a large selection. The yarns are of the highest quality and the Emporium even offers classes to crafters. You must go there!
