Anne Emlein

As a child, Anne Emlein spent summers in Phippsburg, ME with her grandmother, who inspired her to pursue a fiber arts degree. She earned a BFA in Textiles from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1981 and purchased her first knitting machine shortly thereafter. She went on to earn a certificate in discipline‐based art education from the Getty California Consortium for Arts Education and an MFA in Textiles from RISD. Her work has been exhibited in numerous regional and national craft shows and museums, and she was founding director and program chair of the Textile and Fashion Design Department at the Maine College of Art (MECA), where she began teaching in 2012.
