Study Groups

Special Interest Study Groups

As space can be limited and arrangements sometimes change, it’s important to check with the contact person for a group if you would like to participate.  We love to see new faces and fresh ideas.

Creativity Group 

Our purpose is to inspire each other to be more creative. Bring your latest fiber arts project to work on or show off your latest creation. Our meeting are a good place to get inspiration for a new project or a reason to pull out an old project and complete it. We meet at 10 am the second Wednesday of the month at different members homes.  Contact: Pat Mitchell CreativityGHWG@gmail.com for more information.

Hand-Spinning 

Weavers tend to be a rather tactile and self reliant group, and so handspinning often exerts its pull on us at some point or another. Ann Pierson hosts this meeting group the second Monday of the month. Please email Ann Pierson for meeting time and directions.

Inkle Weaving

Inkle means ribbon or tape.  These narrow woven bands have so many uses and pattern possibilities.  Join us and show off your weaving prowess, build your skills and enjoy the camaraderie.  We meet every Friday from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at Yarnworks 4113 NW 13 Street, Gainesville. If you’re interested in inkle weaving, please join us. Contact Janean Easley If you plan to join us.  Phone (727-455-6124).

Mentor Program

A number of our members are available to mentor others on a one-to-one basis. Please email Ann Pierson or announce your desire at a meeting and we’ll find someone to help.

Tapestry Weaving

Tapestry weaving is perhaps one of the most potentially mobile and inexpensive ways to begin weaving. Along with personal projects, this group sometimes works collaboratively to create pieces to exhibit in the larger weaving community on state and national levels. This group is headed by the always energetic and highly skilled Sidsel Moreb and meets once a month. To join, please contact Sidsel for details.

Is there a group missing that you think should be here?  Attend a meeting and offer to host one.
