Founded in 1922, the Weavers' Guild of Boston is the oldest weavers' guild in the United States.  With over 260 members worldwide, our monthly meetings aim to educate members and the general public in the artistic and technical aspects of handweaving and to advance the standards of handweaving.

Members also enjoy a choice of two to four workshops each meeting (workshop registration begins August 15), a quarterly Bulletin (which includes a handweaving draft with instructions), an extensive library, a Ratings program, education grants, special extended workshops, and participation in our Annual Exhibit and Sale.

The Guild meets the second Wednesday of the month from September to November and from February to May.  Guests are always welcome.
