Question answered by diegoveloper (source).

Create your TextEditingController as a global variable in your State class and set it into your TextField widget.

TextEditingController emailController = new TextEditingController();

....


TextField(
  controller: emailController,
  obscureText: true,
  textAlign: TextAlign.left,
  decoration: InputDecoration(
    border: InputBorder.none,
    hintText: 'PLEASE ENTER YOUR EMAIL',
    hintStyle: TextStyle(color: Colors.grey),
  ),
)

Now you can get the value using :

emailController.text
