National Spinning and Weaving Week Celebration and Study Group Expo

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’ll have demonstrations of time-honored crafts like weaving, spinning and knitting plus many lesser known crafts like Kumihimo, Bobbin Lace and Tatting! Take a minute to browse through the Study Group Expo up in the auditorium where you can see 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. Come check it out! 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.
