Events

Gather and Learn!

We have monthly programs about specific weaving topics, provided by an outside expert or experienced guild member.  We also have periodic short refreshers called After Hours  about weaving topics that weavers find helpful.  Both Programs and After Hours are offered at no charge. We also have in-depth multi-day workshops on specific weaving topics or techniques that are offered at additional cost.
