About Us:

We are an Old, but New Guild.

We've been active in Woodstock, IL  for 20 years, and now we've decided to have a fresh start.   Hence our New Name and fresh look.   We're a medium size handweaving Guild with about 60 Members.   About 1/3rd to 1/2 of our Members typically attend our Meetings.

Most of our Members are located in southern WI and northern IL though we have a few in neighboring states.   For carpooling, you can see an interactive map of Members locations here.   Hovering over a bubble will show our Member's town.

Our weavers vary in experience with some very new weavers up through several professional weavers/instructors with decades of experience.   If you have a weaving problem or question, one of our Members will have the answer.

From September through May, we meet at the McHenry County Farm Bureau in Woodstock, IL.   It's located at the intersection of IL 47 (Eastwood Drive) & McConnell Road.   Our meetings begin at 10:00am, with some coffee & tea socializing at 9:30am.   After most Meetings, we go out to a local restaurant for lunch & more weaving discussions.   In June we have our annual Meeting at a Member's home along with a picnic.   See our Location Maps page for specific locations of our Meetings.

We have monthly Programs about specific weaving topics, provided by an outside expert or experienced Guild Member.   We also have periodic short refreshers called After Hours about weaving topics that weavers find helpful.   Both Programs and After Hours are at no charge.   We also have one or two multi-day Workshops delving in depth into a specific weaving topic or technique which are offered at additional cost.

Our new Member application is here in Adobe .pdf format.

Our current Member Renewal form is here in Adobe .pdf format.
