New York Guild of Handweavers

NYGH's picture

The New York Guild of Handweavers meets seven to eight times a year usually on the last
Saturday of the month. Our season runs from September through April, with an occasional
event in the mid-summer period. Exact dates can be found in
the meetings section.

Most meetings begin at noon with a social hour. Bring your lunch to enjoy during this
period, while meeting other weavers.

A selection of books from the Guild's library are available for members to check out.
On occasion, there will be copies of the Guild's sample books on display. These may be
checked out as well.

In addition there is the Weaver's Exchange, also known as the Yarn Table. Here members
can bring yarn to sell as well as any small weaving related items (shuttles, heddle
hooks, etc.) and publications. This is a good place to look for bargains or clear your
supply closet of items no longer needed.

At 1:00pm there is a brief business meeting. Announcements about weaving events,
textiles, etc. may be made by anyone attending. If anyone wishes to ask a weaving
question or get advice this is the appropriate forum. This is followed by the featured
speaker or presentation which usually runs an hour to an hour and a half. Afterwards
you are free to stay and talk to other weavers, ask questions of the presenter and
examine some of the presentation materials if any.

Dues for the year are $40 for and individual, $15 for full time students with ID.
Guests are welcome for $8.00 per lecture, which will be applied to the annual membership
if you join the Guild later.
