Just a short while ago, on a snowy Sunday afternoon, Helen dreamed up the idea of Fiber of Maine. "What if there was a website where you could shop Maine-made fiber products from the comfort of your home?", she wondered. And what if, at the heart of that website, was a yarn subscription, where once a month, a small skein of beautiful Maine yarn and simple pattern would show up on your doorstep no matter where you lived?
Owning a yarn shop in downtown Belfast, Maine since 2003, Helen has gotten to know yarn dyers, handspinners, wood turners, button makers and many customers who are visiting "from away". The shop is small, and doesn't really have the space to display all the wonderful notions and products the craftspeople of our state can provide. Our goal is to use Fiber of Maine to introduce you to the craftspeople that we have come to appreciate, and to bring a piece of Maine to your home state.
What started as a mid-snowstorm daydream has very quickly turned into a reality. We're so glad you're joining us for this adventure!
