The guild returns to the demonstrating crafts tent for the 50th Pink Palace Crafts Fair. Several members contributed handwoven scarves, towels, bags, blankets, jewelry, artwork and more. Our demonstration loom is warped for a new set of towels. Stop in to see us and many other fine crafts in action all weekend.
Guild members - gather to weave together on your favorite small loom in our adjacent weaving tent. Bring your inkle, pin, tapestry, rigid heddle, or other weaving.
The Memphis Guild of Handloom weavers was founded in 1947 but Viola Joyce Quigley and fellow students from the Memphis Academy of Art. Since then, the guild has held art shows, workshops with internationally reknowned instructors, classes for the public, and sales of handwoven goods.
We continue to promote the time-honored craft of handweaving into the 21st century.
