Established in 1947, the Michigan Weavers Guild is now in its 71st year. The group is dedicated to encouraging excellence, inspiring creativity, and preserving fiber traditions by providing forums for the education of hand weavers, hand spinners, basket makers, and fiber artists in related disciplines.

“The Michigan Weavers Guild is a very active group that holds monthly workshops with speakers,” Program Chairperson Nancy Peck said in a press release. “This month Susan Lolli will speak about her fascination with Guatemalan textiles, and upcoming workshops include an exploration of loom-controlled lace weaves, and a dye day for warps and skeins of yarn using fiber reactive, cold water dyes.”
