Summer FUN!

Although our monthly Guild meetings are done for the summer, that doesn't stop us from having weaving fun over the summer. This summer, we're doing 3 different activities. They are:

Tablet Weaving with Angela

Weaving Iridescence study group

Picnic-related weave-along and challenge.

The Tablet Weaving class and Weaving Iridescence study group require registration so that Angela can let people know about supplies and schedules and we can all get Bobbie Irwin's book on Weaving Iridescence. The Summertime Fun picnic weave-along and challenge is less structured so folks can join in throughout the summer. Email mghw@mghw.org for more information or go to the Guild Facebook page (and join if not a member!)  https://www.facebook.com/groups/436254106710231/

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.

Guild Library

The guild keeps an extensive library of over 300 books and videos on a wide variety of weaving topics. Members may check out media from the library.

The guild also owns 10 looms and a colections of smaller equipment and tools.
