The Fiber Center is Part of The Fryeburg Fair, Fryeburg, Maine


Fryeburg  Fair  has  supported  fiber  
education  since 1991 and built The Fiber Center, a  permanent  fiber  exhibition  hall  in  2004.  

The Fiber Center serves to educate the public about Fiber Arts featuring fiber art demonstrations and educational exhibits throughout fair week. 

Our Mission
"to expose the public to natural fibers that can be produced in Maine and to promote their many uses. Our primary goal is to have people see animal fiber in the raw transformed into the yarns, cloth and felt that we use to create practical & usable finished products as well as purely artistic forms. We do this through the visual arts of educational displays and actual hands on demonstrations. In addition, we can introduce new enthusiasts to the Traditional Fiber Arts by making fibers, items and equipment used in processing that fiber, and finished fiber products available for the public to purchase while maintaining the integrity of a highly educational exhibit."

Our building's post and beam open construction offers a large alternative gallery space that features a Fiber Art Exhibit during fair week each year. 

This unique environment allows new eyes to see and understand the progression of natural fibers from function and Craft to Fiber Art.
