The purpose of the guild is to promote handspinning, handweaving and related fiber arts in the community and to provide a means of exchange of knowledge to the membership.
There are 35 members from Klamath Falls, Oregon and surrounding areas. Anyone interested in handspinning, handweaving, and/or a related fiber art may become a member upon payment of the required dues. Member benefits include eligibility to attend meetings, to bring guests to the meetings, to attend guild workshops at a reduced rate and automatic membership in WeGO (the state organization, Weaving Guilds of Oregon). We publish a monthly newsletter for our members, edited by Sharon Allen of Chiloquin, OR. Annual dues are $10 /year.
Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month (excepting July and August) at 10 a.m., with regularly scheduled business and usually a program.
