The Maine Folklife Center at the University of Maine has launched a special exhibit highlighting the diversity of folk fiber arts in Maine entitled “Threads of Our Lives: Maine Folk Fiber Art.” The panels illustrate how Mainers from various backgrounds are carrying on their fiber art traditions.

The exhibit was created by the Maine Folklife Center with generous help from the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibit travels through inter-library loan to libraries throughout the state of Maine. Below are samples of two of the four standing posters available for the exhibit; the other two are “New Mainers” and “Settlers.” Wabanaki and Community
