Crafts & Fiber Art

Crafts

A couple years back, the Maine Turnpike Authority entered into a wonderful relationship with the Maine Crafts Association and opened the Center for Maine Craft at the West Gardiner Travel Plaza. No matter what time of year, if you stop in you’ll get the chance to pick up something special created by one of Maine’s hugely-talented crafts workers. You can also stop in at the Maine Made & More stores in Belgrade and Waterville for more Maine craft and gifts that truly “speak like a Mainer.”

Fiber Art

“Only in Maine” is a phrase heard from time to time, but with the annual Fiber Frolic, they might be right. This early June festival, held at the Windsor Fairgrounds, is a mecca for the fiber art world. It is a marketplace “celebrating fiber, fiber animals, and fiber arts.” Not too baaaad!
