Fiber Arts Fair

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The first annual Acadia Fiber Faire is scheduled for locations throughout Southwest Harbor on Friday, May 21 and Saturday, May 22. There will be designated gathering areas in town for spinners, quilters, knitters, crocheters, weavers, stitchers and rug hookers.


Pemetic Elementary School will host a variety of vendors, and will be the setting for an assortment of fiber arts classes. Demonstrations and activities for children will take place in the tent on the green. A “fiberhead” hat fashion show will take place in the afternoon with prizes for the most creative designs.

Ongoing demonstrations in all of the fiber arts will be occurring throughout the day, including the chance to sit back and take the opportunity to stitch, spin, knit or hook rugs.

Linda Cortright, editor of Wild Fibers Magazine, is scheduled to be the special guest and speaker at the opening reception on Friday evening, May 21. Tickets will be available at the door. Admission to the fair on Saturday is free, but donations will be accepted to benefit Summer Festival of the Arts (SFOA), Mount Desert Island’s summer arts program for children.
