Abstract

A look at the fiber crafts revival that is taking place across the state of Maine. The movement is an outgrowth of the increased interest in small farms, local agriculture, and domestic crafts, as well as the newly added textile and fashion design major at Maine College of Art. Article includes brief profiles of several people and companies involved in the new fledgling textile industry: Nanne Kennedy, Halcyon Yarn, Romney Ridge Farm, a sheep-to-shawl yarn company in Woolwich; Bristol Ivy, a knitting designer; and Swans Island Company, which manufactures 1,000 blankets and throws each year.
