Note: Beattie Chicks is closing at the end of November 2012. Look for Leslie and Hannah’s great work at craft fairs and shops throughout New England. 

PS: The Beattie Chicks currently have a cute shop in Brunswick called, Hatch On Maine.

MP and CP#1 enjoyed a girls’ day out on Saturday and visited the Grand Opening of the Beattie Chicks Makery in Brunswick. Owners Leslie and Hannah Beattie are creative sisters-in-law who teach art classes to both kids and adults. The two women originally held classes at their home studios in Topsham and Harpswell, but after outgrowing these spaces, they decided to open a new studio at the Fort Andross Mill. Their goal? To build community through art.

The Makery reminded MP of her high school art classroom—only so much cooler. The generously sized space features student work as well as original art for sale. There are also shelves of rubber stamps, bins of brightly colored craft paper, paints, markers, brushes, fabrics and a sewing station.

We’re sad to note: Wildflours Bakery is no longer at this location due to fire. However, you can find their yummy treats at restaurants and markets throughout the state. Visit their Facebook page for details. 

Update 2016: Wildflours is rebuilding in Brunswick, according to The Forecaster.

It’s no secret that the Cute Potato team loves to bake. Our favorites? Classic Betty Crocker banana bread, Ghirardelli chocolate brownies and the fabulous oatmeal raisin cookies featured on the back of the Quaker Oat’s lid. So you can imagine we were sent into a bit of a tailspin when we learned CP#1 needed to go gluten-free, meaning baking with whole wheat flour was out of the question.

We’ve had our eye on Brunswick-based Sheabella Tutus for quite some time. Founder Carrie Sullivan has been creating her gorgeous tutus for tiny dancers since 2007. Carrie’s attention to detail has garnered national attention, too—her thoughtful designs were among Babble’s Best.

Sheabella tutus come in sizes 3T-5 and 6-8

Sheabella tutus are made of super soft tulle and come in a variety of ballerina-worthy colors and styles. CP #1 loves the girly embellishments, including satin ribbons and faux flowers. MP can’t wait to surprise her this holiday with one of Carrie’s lovely princess length designs.
