Programs

Programs, Presentations, and Meetings:
During part of the year, we hold special meetings focusing on a particular aspect of weaving and/or fiber arts. These meetings are led by invited expert guests or knowledgeable fiber artists from within our own ranks. These programs run September through April with a few exceptions noted in the calendar listing. We also have guild gatherings during the busy holiday months and the summer where we kick back to enjoy good food and company. If you share (or think you might share) an interest in weaving and fiber arts, please feel free to drop in and introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you.

2018 Fall–2019 Spring

Wednesday meetings are in the evening and include regular guild business and a presentation by a speaker while Saturday  meetings include additional hands-on workshops.
