Meetings and Events Schedule


Visitors are Always Welcome   -   We'd Love to have YOU Join Us !

Our monthly Guild Meetings begin at 9:30am on the first Wednesday of the month.   

Visitors and Guests are welcome at every Guild Meeting, just sign in at the door.

From September through May, meetings will be at the McHenry County Farm Bureau, Woodstock, Illinois.   The Farm Bureau is located at 1102 McConnell Road (on the south side of the road, just east of IL47 / Eastwood Dr.)   
In June, we usually meet near Marengo for our annual picnic & 'stash reduction sale'.  
You can view all of our Location Maps by clicking here.

Of course we hope that you will want to join us after visiting once or twice.

Most meeting days we go to lunch around 12:30pm.    If you can come, it's a great time to have lunch, share ideas, and chat informally with fellow weavers.
