Now ready to download: “Learning Fiber Art: A Guide to Maine Teaching Resources.” The Guide includes listings of close to a hundred Maine studios, farms, shops and centers where fiber art learning takes place. Profiles of Maine people and places that have a long-standing dedication to this field are also included, with lots of photos of fiber art.

The book was conceived, designed and produced completely in-house, and stems from the design and technological expertise of Carol Jones and the photography and community knowledge of Christine Macchi, and from our love of fiber, craft and making. Please use Learning Fiber Art as a guide to learn new skills, to discover a friend, or to take your work to the next level. Great teachers are ready to help you!
