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 fiber 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.
Fryeburg Fair has supported fiber education for more than 15 years and built a permanent fiber exhibition hall in 2004.
The Fiber Center serves to educate the public about Fiber Arts featuring fiber art demonstrations throughout fair week.
The Fiber Center features alternative gallery space to show fiber during fair week. This unique environment allows new eyes to see and understand the progression of natural fibers from function and craft to fiber art.
