Store Manager

Laurie have over 25 years of experience at Mary Maxim. Her knowledge and expertise is a great asset to the day to day working of the store! And her Customer Service is second to none. Many shopping experiences these days can be faceless interactions with a computer screen which is fine if you’re in a hurry. However, Laurie as well as our entire team, are dedicated to the philosophy of “The Customer is our Priority" and this is the type of service you'll find at the Mary Maxim Retail Store!






"This store has supplies that I cannot easily find elsewhere for many different crafting techniques. They have nice store-brand yarns. On my most recent trip I found knitting needles I'd never seen before. I've since ordered more "pairs" (sets fo three!) since they're so cool. I enjoy stopping in here every time I'm passing through town."

" The quilting classes are phenominal support groups for anyone from beginners to advanced. There is so much knowledge from the instruction and so much flexibility in how creative you can be. I love them! I just can't get here fast enough for my class time!"

"My Grandmother used to order so much stuff from Mary Maxim, that when I saw on in real life, I had to stop. Such a neat store, with so many craft things. We picked up a bunch of Christmas stocking stuffers because everyone needs more crafts in their life."
