Maine Fiber Resource Guide
An Online Directory of Maine Fiber Resources
Maine Fiberarts has been tasked by the Maine Department of Agriculture, funded through a matching grant from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP) to compile this guide to Maine fiber resources.
It is designed to be a comprehensive online guide to resources related to fiber and the fiber industry, to provide useful information for fiber enthusiasts, fiber farmers, artists and craftspeople working in fiber, and anyone wanting to know more about Maine's growing fiber industry.
A “resource” may include related fiber processing mills, farms, artists, craftspeople, galleries, fiber producers, suppliers, shops, learning centers, organizations and manufacturers. It may also include relevant books, websites, residency programs, and annual festivals or retreats. Listings are FREE and are aimed at bringing greater visibility for Maine’s fiber industry to regional, national and international consumer markets.
If you have a resource to share, or a business that can provide a "fiber resource" please fill out our online form now, printed forms are available to fill out and mail back to us at Maine Fiberarts' headquarters in Topsham.
An additional component of this ambitious project is to host a Craft/Farm Institute in 2013 to assist fiber practitioners and producers in their marketing efforts. The venue is yet to be announced so stay tuned. There will be workshops, classes, panel discussions, hands-on training and demonstrations. If you would like to teach any of the topics listed please indicate this on the form. If you have other suggestions please let us know on the form.
Listings are free. We invite you to list your resource. Just follow a few simple guidelines on the entry form.
