STITCH: MAINE DESIGNERS ON THE RUNWAY
A FASHION FUNDRAISER BENEFITING THE MAINE CRAFTS ASSOCIATION
The first STITCH Runway Show was Thursday June 6, 2019 @ Urban Farm Fermentory, 200 Anderson Street in Portland, Maine. STITCH featured an evening of style, celebrating Maine designers in a live runway show and offering opportunities to mix and mingle with fellow supporters and followers of design, art & craft – all in support of one of Maine’s essential non-profit arts organizations: the Maine Craft Association.
The 2019 show theme was the urban farm, mirroring the host, Urban Farm Fermentory, and the form and function of clothing designed and made in Maine: helping us all look good, while doing good in our small cities, small farms and everywhere in-between. $50 tickets ($40 for current MCA members) supported the Maine Crafts Association and included one drink, snacks, admission to the runway show, access to the style market and socializing before and after the show.

Jolene McGowan, Runway Show Emcee
Oxbow is a small farmhouse brewery located in rural Newcastle, Maine. The brewery is nestled in an enchanted forest amongst rolling farmlands and winding tidal rivers, of which the ebb and flow provide a constant reminder that the coast is near. The name Oxbow is inspired by the bends in these rivers, the Dyer in particular, which features stunning horseshoe-shaped oxbows where the river covers tremendous ground to travel what could otherwise be a very short linear distance. We employ a similar approach when crafting our beers, taking months or years to create a beverage that is commonly produced in a matter of days.
