PortFiber is a fiberarts supply shop located in the East Bayside neighborhood of Portland, Maine. It's aim is to support and inspire the fiber arts community with quality supplies and amazing classes taught by local instructors. Whether you felt, knit, crochet, spin, weave, or dye, you'll find something you love here! Fiber arts is in our collective history. 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.
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 their life.
When they are not in the shop or doing fibery things, they enjoy dancing around the house, drinking coffee, biking and walking around town, and reading sci-fi & fantasy.
