Fiber Center


Karen Cornell, Fiber Center Superintendent


Fiber at the Fryeburg Fair is an educational exhibit to introduce the public to natural animal fibers that can be produced in Maine and to promote their many uses. Our primary goal is for people to see animal fibers transformed into the yarns, cloth and felt we use to create practical and usable finished products, as well as purely artistic fiber forms through the visual arts of educational displays and hands-on demonstrations. More then 30 volunteers devote their time and talents to demonstrate during the Fryeburg Fair week. Each year a new Guest Artist is featured. The Fiber Center at Fryeburg Fair is the only agricultural building of its kind devoted specifically to fiber Education in New England.
