A FiberMe highlight for me is our visit to Chris Leith of Eggemoggin Textile Studio in Sedgwick, Maine. Chris’ lovely home and studio are perched high on a hill with a distant view of Eggemoggin Bay and the surrounding blueberry fields. Chris has a dye / warp painting area set up as well as her two eight shaft looms and a gallery area featuring her woven and shibori dyed scarves and outstanding work of other fiber artists.
This year Chris will demonstrate her method of warp painting so you will be able to see her lovely woven pieces ‘from start to finish’. When we visit Chris we can get a full appreciation of a well set up and well thought out work area for a fiber artist and how she integrates that work area into her everyday life.
I appreciate Chis’ support and mentoring of other younger fiber artists and her willingness and enthusiasm for fiber arts in Maine. Her enthusiasm is infectious.
Now is the time to join FiberME 2015 and look forward to visiting Chris and others on Tuesday, August 4th in Sedgwick. She will be our first stop of the day and she will also join us for lunch so everyone has more opportunity to get to know her.
Don’t forget – the early bird price of $750 for FiberME 2015 is only available until April 30th. May 1st, the price goes up to $825.00. Don’t miss your chance to save!
