PortFiber is a fiberarts supply shop located in the East Bayside neighborhood of Portland, Maine. It's aim is to support and inspire the fiberarts community with quality supplies and amazing classes taught by local instructors. Whether you felt, knit, spin, weave, or dye, you'll find something you love here! Fiberarts is in our collective blood. It's a connection to our past, to our ancestors, to the earth and it's fiber producing plants and animals. Let's embrace those connections and make new ones with those who share the love of fiber.
If you want the longform version of Casey's story, check out her podcast interview with Ashley Yousling of the Woolful Podcast.
Casey grew up in Veazie, Maine and graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a degree in Elementary Education. She started interning at the Portland Fiber Gallery & Weaving Studio in the summer of 2009, learning how to dye and eventually spin, felt, and weave. Creating has always been a part of her life.
Casey lives in Portland with Jackson, her big white dog & Stanley, her cranky-old-man cat. When she is not in the shop or doing fibery things, Casey enjoys biking around town, drinking coffee, and lounging on the East End with a great book or with lovely humans.
