Trunk Show at PortFiber

PortFiber 50 Cove St., Portland, ME

This year's Maine Craft Weekend coincides with PorFiber's 9-Year anniversary! We are looking forward to celebrating with Maine makers Katherine Ferrier of Threadwrite, Wade Stephens of Husk, and Rachel Bingham Kessler of 44 Clovers. Katherine is a poet, dancer, maker, teacher, curator, and community organizer. She will be here with her patchwork clothing and accessories and will be writing typewriter poems on the spot that might just make you weep. Wade is a textile artist with a heavy focus on wool. Inspired by color, texture, and natural forms, they will be showcasing their felted handbags and accessories. Rachel is a plant dye educator, writer, sewist, and painter with a degree in Art Education. She works annually, sourcing Maine fleeces to be spun into yarn, which she then dyes with natural, local plants and other natural dyes. Come squish these beauties and celebrate all things fiber with us!
