Welcome to Loom & Shuttle Guild. We are a guild of approximately 60 weavers that was founded in 1948. Centered in San Francisco, our members come from around the San Francisco Bay Area. We weave on many different types of looms: from rigid heddle, back strap, and table looms, through multi-shaft, multi-harness, and jacquard. Some weave without any loom at all! All of us are interested in the interlacements of warp and weft. A wide range of weaving interests, skills and experiences are shared at meetings as well as outstanding programs with focused topics, and other inspirational events.
WE WELCOME NEW WEAVERS
To inquire about membership or other matters, please contact Wendy Bertrand, 2019loomandshuttlePRESIDENT@gmail.com
