  • The membership year runs from June 1 of the current year through May 31 of the following year. Dues are paid once a year during the month of June.
  • Any new or renewing members who pay their dues in June of the current year will have a full year of membership with their yearly membership due again during June of the following year.
  • Remember this date. If you forget to pay during June, but pay after that, your membership will still come due again in June of the following year.
  • If you are a brand new member, joining Maine Fiberarts for the first time, you will be entitled to a 5 month extended/grace period if you pay in January or after. In other words.
