My name is Barbara and this is my first post/intro to Senior Forums. I enjoy rug hooking and working with fabric and fiber in general. I have been house hunting rather unsuccessfully along coastal Maine with a limited budget. I was hoping to find a place near a friend in Gorham or south. I am a western Massachusetts native and really love New England and would like to live in Maine to walk the beaches in the off-seasons and be active in the many fiber related groups I’ve heard of such as hooking , knitting , embroidery, etc. I would grateful for any information about the community of the Lewiston Auburn area. I look forward to ‘chatting '. Thank you.
