S.E.A.M. Gathering at Z Fabrics                                

Saturday, January 26th 5-7pm FREE!

With the frenzy of the holidays over and the rhythm of the new year just settling in, it's a good time to get inspired, and a great time for a S.E.A.M. gathering!  We'll have special guest Anne Emlein joining us, she's the Head of the new Textiles, Apparel & Fashion Program at Maine College of Art! She is a welcome addition to the creative community in Portland, come hear what she has in mind for this emerging department.

                    Anne Emlein is an artist, designer, and educator with a passion for creative expression via textiles,     
                    apparel, and fashion.  Earning her MFA in Textiles from RISD and her BFA in Textiles from 
                    California College of Arts and Crafts, Anne's core expertise includes teaching knitting, textiles for
                    apparel, and fine arts textile courses.  She has exhibited her knitwear, apparel, and fine arts work 
                    throughout the country.  Anne maintains an in-home studio practice, adhering to traditional hand 
                    processes and employing timeless design along with a commitment to sustainable, local materials.  
                    Her knitwear enterprise is an extension of her fine arts work.  Anne's professional experience 
                    includes a strong emphasis on pursuing collaborative opportunities for the sake of lifelong learning
                   and inspiration.  In addition to chairing the Textiles, Apparel, and Fashion Department at MECA, she 
                   also teaches in the Textiles Department at the Rhode Island School of Design.   

Plus bring fabric and patterns for swapping, and of course, bring something to share for the Sew and Tell, we want to to see what you've made, or what you're are working on!  Hope to see you there!
