An invitation for a virtual pool party  (5/27) has been emailed to the members of the guild.  If you have not received it yet, let us know  by emailing  Valeria and we’ll send it again.

The Gainesville Handweavers Guild is joining the ranks of those around us to avoid spreading the virus by canceling in person program.  Still, we are trying to stay connected by visiting our FACEBOOK page or checking the new Instagram link.

The June program will be held online.  More information coming soon

Stay healthy and  please wash your hands and wear the mask 

In January of 1976, a small group of textile enthusiasts created the Gainesville Handweavers’ Guild. The purpose of the Guild was to further the art and appreciation for handweaving and related fiber arts. Since then, the Guild has gone on to expand its membership and continues to aid and encourage members to develop through learning experiences, exhibits, and fellowship. The Guild functions to inform and educate the Gainesville area community concerning the fiber arts.

Each of our meetings focuses on a different aspect of fiber arts, and are led by invited expert guests or experienced fiber artists from within our ranks. The Guild welcomes all new members, and we are happy to demonstrate and teach our skills. Visitors are always welcome.

Monthly Meetings

We meet once a month, either Wednesday evening  or Saturday morning.   Meetings are open to all, although we encourage every participant to become a member.

Occasionally, holiday meetings are held in other locations. Please see program page for scheduled program topics.
