Writes Elizabeth Busch: "Having been an artist all my life and an 'art quilter' since 1983, I've come to realize that my art work is all about process. Whether I am airbrushing, spreading Textile Paint on canvas taped to my table top, hand quilting or weaving painted acetate strips through plastic netting for one of my large kinetic sculptures, I am responding to that voice within that tells me today it's time to make art.

our building in Topsham

Maine Fiberarts Center and Gallery are closed for drop-ins due to the pandemic uncertainties. Call or email to make an appointment with Christine. We are still working at home or here. Wear your mask and wash your hands and be well.

Affectionately and internally called "Fiber Central" because of the activities and information that find their way into and out of the offices and gallery space, Maine Fiberarts first opened its headquarters at 13 Main Street in Topsham in 2003. This is the place to find out everything you want to know, show or tell about fiber art and farms.

Allegra Kuhn:  “art and design, fiber and handwork, have always had a presence in my life. I’ve experimented with most fiber processes, but tend to be drawn to those that may not be as ‘current’ or fashionable. My interest in traditional rug hooking or hooking with wool grew out of a part time job in the industry.
