The COSW guild has about 50 members from the region in and around Bend, Oregon. The Guild provides the ability to network, share, learn and teach your craft with others who share the same passion. COSW meets monthly (except December and January) on the third Wednesday from 9:30 a.m to 12:00 noon. Meetings are usually held at the Highland Baptist Church off Hwy. 126 and SW 31st St. Visitors should email the contact listed below to confirm the meeting date, place and time of our meetings. In addition to the general meetings we hold monthly spin-ins, held on the second Wednesday of the month. Weaving study groups meet at various times. All members have access to a wonderful library and may rent fiber processing and weaving equipment from the Guild.
To foster the arts of weaving and spinning,
to stimulate further interest in the crafts
for those who are already engaged in them,
and to stimulate interest in the crafts for others.
We attempt to hold 2 workshops a year for our members, one focusing on weaving and one on spinning. As part of our community out-reach the Guild members demonstrate spinning and weaving in the exhibit hall at the Deschutes County Fair every year. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in fiber arts and their creation.
Membership fees are $25.00 a year for the calendar year January through December.
Dues are prorated after July 1 for members joining after January 1.
