We welcome you to join our friendly community of San Francisco Bay Area weavers who support and inspire its members and the public.
Member skill levels range from beginners to professionals. 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!
The Guild meets the first Saturday of each month (second Saturday on weekend holidays). Currently all meetings are online until further notice. Members receive an email with the online meeting link, a week before the meeting.
We do not offer guest membership. Annual Membership fees are $40.00/year, or $70.00/2 years. To become a member, or for questions about membership, contact Membership.
New members can join the guild at any time. Membership renewal for existing members is due every year by the end of July.
