May Meeting

End of Year Virtual Fiber Feast!

May 23, 11:00 am

Although we can't physically be together, that doesn't stop us from meeting virtually and sharing a meal while we have a hands-on demo about weaving with coffee filters (Mary Anne will be teaching us), show and tell, vote for a treasurer to fill out the rest of Ria's term, AND (drumroll) talk about our summer study groups, classes, and weave-along challenge.

Sneak peak at summer 'doings':

Guild History

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.
