Welcome!

Maine Fiberarts is a statewide nonprofit membership organization formed in 2000. We welcome members who love and support fiber art and farms and the producers, makers and consumers who keep this wonderful and useful industry alive and prospering in Maine.

Our programs are designed to foster this special work in basketry, beadwork, clothing design, crochet, embroidery, felting, knitting, lacework, needlework, paper, quilting, rugs, sewing, spinning, surface design, and weaving.

Our goals are to create greater opportunities for artists to exhibit work, to apprentice, to mentor, to teach crafts to children, to find school residencies, to sell fleeces and fiber products, to find guilds and study groups, to learn about events, and to become better connected.

Mary has fabric art, potholders, and other gifts, and Jan has some pieces from her “Glass Managerie” series. Stop by. Says Mary, “I have loved fabric for as far back as I can remember… the textures and flexibility, the colors and patterns. It seems there is always something new to try with this medium, from clothing design to fabric art and functional items…..I opened my own clothing shop in Mount Vernon in1977 and spent the last three years in Farmington. After closing the doors in August 2000, I continued making custom clothing, but focused more on ‘Fabric Art.’ One of the larger of these pieces was created for the chapel at Farmington Memorial Hospital in 2005 and is still enjoyed by many people.” FMI: 207-779-1957

Janet Conner's hooked Van GoghJANET CONNER writes the following: Dear RUG HOOKING friends, colleagues, students, teachers and hooking artists, Can you please help me with a big project/dream of mine that has been percolating for at least a decade? My mission is to write a book for rug hookers that illustrates the great design resource of ART HISTORY....the whole timeline from Prehistoric to Post Modern, with forays into Asian, Oceanic, Native American, African, and Aboriginal Australian images. I NEED PHOTOGRAPHS of your great rugs which have been adapted or inspired by fine art and indigenous tribal design. Ideally, I would love to have several rugs representing each major movement in Art History. Each section of the book will contain information about the art of that period and its relevance for rug hookers, along with technical hints for hooking in that style. Because I have specialized in teaching American Folk Art and Post Impressionism (especially Van Gogh), these categories are already well filled. It would be fantastic to receive submissions of your work!!! By email please, to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Submissions should be: well photographed; include your written permission to publish in the future (it is okay if it has been previously “seen,” “shown,” or published.... this will be a new context); include title and date of the fine art piece (or style) referenced; include descriptive notes by YOU about materials used, dimensions in inches, your name and town, year completed and what inspired you to hook this piece; and include any additional info, story, etc. you would like readers to know about you and your work. Don’t have any Art History inspired rugs in your portfolio, but would be willing to MAKE ONE??? (by January 1, 2019)?? Email me if you would like suggestions, help drawing a design, or if you know a hooker. With your generous help and kindness, I hope to fulfill this dream--only possible with lots of networking and communication within the rug hooking community. Thank you, thank you!    —Janet Conner, PO Box 224, Hiram, ME 04041, www.jconnerhookedrugs.com, This email address is being protected from spambots.

MARIANNE SENECHAL writes: "Studio to Share in Bath, ME; available immediately (April 1, 2018). I am looking for an artist to share my studio on upper Front Street in Bath. The total studio is nearly 450 square feet in size and the portion available for a co-renter is over 150 square feet; doors separate this portion of the studio from the rest of the space. The shared studio space also has a private bathroom. The studio is on the second floor, no lift, stairs only. $200/month plus utilities (about $20 per month). I am a feltmaker. The studio has good natural light and would be good for a painter, mixed media artist, sculptor or fiber artist. I can’t have open flame in the studio (so most jewelers would probably be out); the floors are carpeted, and the studio is on the second floor, so wet or dusty work (like ceramics) would also not be a good fit.
