The Weavers' Guild of St. Louis is celebrating National Spinning and Weaving Week at the University City Public Library on Saturday, October 6th from 1 - 4 pm. 

We had demonstrations of time-honored crafts like weaving, spinning and knitting plus many lesser known crafts like Kumihimo, Bobbin Lace and Tatting with examples from the many study groups in our guild like Swedish Weaving, Garment Weaving, Rigid Heddle Weaving, Long & Skinny (woven bands & braids), New Weavers, Spinners & Knitters, Tatting & Bobbin Lace and Tapestry.

Study Groups are an excellent opportunity to explore new fiber techniques within the support and encouragement of a small group of like-minded artisans.

The Weavers' Guild of St. Louis marked their 92nd Anniversary this year and is proud to be the second oldest such guild in the nation.

Some Items from our 2017 Sale 

2019 Guild Challenge "Fibonacci"

Most of us know the basics of the Fibonacci series (0,1,1,2,3,5,8 etc) and may have used it in designing stripes but where else in nature do we find the sequence and what are the design implications and uses?, Nationally known weaver and author of The Weaver’s Studio: Doubleweave, Jennifer Moore’s presentation will give us many new ideas to sharpen our design skills using the Fibonacci sequence.  This will be applicable for all fiber enthusiasts from knitters, crocheters, felters, weavers, jewelry makers, and even basket weavers.
