Our quilt show "Thoughts of Spring" will be held at the New Maryland Centre at 754 New Maryland Highway on April 29th and 30th. The times are 10a.m. - 8p.m. on Friday the 29th, and 10a.m. - 4p.m. on Saturday the 30th. New Maryland is a residential community located to the south of Fredericton.
If you are approaching Fredericton from the east (Moncton or Saint John) on TCH #2, after passing Oromocto do NOT take exit# 294 (to Fredericton, Miramichi and Mactaquac), but stay on TCH (#2) towards Edmundston, and take EXIT 285A. Turn right at Stop sign and continue straight through the village of New Maryland. After 4.1 km. the road takes a sharp curve to the left towards Fredericton Junction or you can go straight towards Charters Settlement. Keep straight and the New Maryland Centre is immediately on your right, in behind the Ball Field. Watch for our signs. Distance from stop sign at Exit to the NM Centre driveway is 4.25km.
If you are approaching Fredericton from the west (Woodstock and upriver) do NOT take exit 280 (to Fredericton and Miramichi) where the highway splits but keep to the right following signs towards Moncton and Saint John. Continue on TCH#2 and take EXIT 285A/B. Turn right at stop sign and proceed straight through the village of New Maryland. In 3.8 km. the road takes a sharp curve to the left (towards Fredericton Junction) or you can go straight towards Charters Settlement. Keep straight and the New Maryland Centre is immediately on your right, in behind the Ball Field. Watch for our signs. Distance from stop sign at Exit to the NM Centre driveway is 3.9km.
If you are already in the city of Fredericton, proceed "up the hill" on Regent Street, passing over the highway, and passing the Fredericton Inn and Regent Mall on your right, continuing straight through three sets of lights. Continue straight and after several kms. of forest, you will enter New Maryland (just after passing under the new highway). Continue straight through the village. The distance from the light at the main entrance to Regent Mall (the first light, with Mall on your right and Hugh John Flemming Forestry Centre entrance on left) to New Maryland Centre driveway is exactly 7 kms.
