August Meeting / Welcome Back
Saturday, 24, 2019, 9:30 am - noon
Join MGHW for the start of our 2019-2020 year. We'll share 'what we wove over summer break' (just like those book reports when we were kids, but so much more fun), do some preparation for the Pink Palace festival, and take additional programming ideas. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Monthly meetings include a short business meeting, educational program, and viewing of members' work.
Meetings are held on the 4th Saturday of the month, 9:30 am - noon at White Station Church of Christ, 1106 Colonial Rd, Memphis, TN 38117
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.
