Weavers and Spinners of All Kinds Welcome!

The San Juan Weavers Guild was established January 13, 1977 by nine women. Their purpose was to celebrate the art and craft of handweaving and handspinning.

 

Over the years the Guild has been actively involved in preserving the arts of handweaving and handspinning by educating the public through demonstrations, etc. The Guild has also supported a number of different groups, who are working to preserve handweaving and handspinning. Such as the Navajo Sheep Project, the Mountain Valley Developmental Services weaving program, HGA and WARP, just to name a few.

 

The San Juan Weavers Guild has grown to number eighty plus members, several of which are nationally known weavers, spinners and teachers. Weavers and Spinners of all levels of experience are gladly welcomed.
