A Grand Gathering of Fiber Artists and Students on the Coast of Maine:
Educating Creative Expression

Calling all Fiber Artists! 

Our third annual KnitMaine-ia fashion show is going to be better than ever this year!  KnitMaine-ia and Fiber College are teaming up to bring you a colorful, creative, fun and inspiring event! 

KnitMaine-ia 2012 Information Sheet-deadline 8/15/12

Once again, all proceeds will be donated to New Hope for Women, whose mission is to offer support to people in Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties affected by domestic and dating violence, and to provide educational resources to assist our communities in creating a safer and healthier future. 

In addition, we are asking contributors to make a pair of mittens or a hat for the Three Little Kitten Project; an organization that helps keep children of Waldo county warm in the winter.

Please help us to make this event a success, as we seek to bring together community for the greater good.  The event is scheduled for Thursday evening at 5:30 P.M., Sept. 6, 2012 right after FC classes get out for the day.

Submit your favorite piece(s) to show off your handiwork. Clothing and accessories will be

A wine and cheese reception with fun door prizes will follow the event. View the Fiber College Instructors’ Exhibit in the Art Studio while enjoying the refreshments and great company!

What is Fiber College?  

It's all about doing...and it's more than classes:  it's community, sharing and evening events.

We hold the following statements to be true:  September is the most beautiful month on the coast of Maine.  Surrounded by the sea and bordered by gardens you can relax, revitalize and daydream~ you know that you need this.  Friendships are built around shared interests, long pauses and unexpected connections. 

Fiber College is a completely volunteer-driven, learning festival devoted to introducing, maintaining and furthering traditional arts using all forms of fiber.  We invite talented artists to teach a wide range of fee-based classes in hopes that you will sample new vistas and share your passions.  In the evening there are gatherings for meals, exchanges and casual learning.  

On September 6-9, 2012 you have the choice of taking classes, chosen now or at the gate, or simply purchasing an entrance pass ($8) and spending the day.  Either way you'll be in the midst of beauty, watching scheduled demonstrations, visiting the Gallery show, strolling the Shoppers Boulevard, interacting with fiber critters and wandering through the acres of organic gardens and miles of beach.  Said another way, we want you to dawdle at the the water's edge, soaking up the atmosphere, the passion and wonderful people who weave the sizzle into Fiber College.

The College is always held on the beautiful grounds of Searsport Shores  in mid-coast Maine the weekend after Labor Day.  Accomodations are available at the park and in the surrounding hotels and B&B's of Searsport and Belfast. Come when you can.  Everybody is welcome.  Click the slide show to the right for a tour of years' past...
