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.
2020 WOVEN VISIONS
SUMMER EXHIBIT OF WEAVING AT SANCHEZ ART CENTER
This past year’s highlight was 2020: Woven Visions, a Loom and Shuttle Guild members’ exhibit at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA from July 10 to August 16, 2020 during four weekends Friday-Sunday, free to the public. Some demonstrations and a small kiosk of items rounded out the larger pieces exhibited. Despite the restrictions posed by COVID health concerns, a number of visitors were able to enjoy our members’ work.
