Next up for our May Meeting (zoom)
Join us for our end of spring Fiber Feast at 11:00 am (later than our usual time) on May 22. Have your favorite brunch/lunch to snack on as we take care of business (elect new officers), share what's on (or newly off) our looms, and prepare for Christmas in July by weaving some Danish hearts (although, really, hearts are for any time!). Follow the link for the instructions and templates if you want to play along!
Also, if you have ideas for summer study groups or projects (can I get a "whoop, whoop" for deflected doubleweave?), bring them so we can keep the weaving fun going through summer.
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.
Enjoy the benefits of guild membership for $40 annual dues.
