Promoting Weaving and Fiber Arts since 1947
Columbia Weavers and Spinners’ Guild is organized to support education in the skills of weaving, spinning and other fiber arts and to promote the appreciation of these arts and crafts in central Missouri.
The guild was founded in 1947 as the Columbia Weavers Guild and specialized in weaving alone. Since our founding we have grown to encompass other fiber arts such as spinning, dyeing, felting, papermaking, knitting, basketweaving, quilting and surface designing, etc. Now called the Columbia Weavers and Spinners’ Guild, we welcome weavers, spinners and fiber enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels. Members include beginners, hobbyists, professionals, and teachers.
The Columbia Weavers and Spinners’ Guild actively promotes fiber arts in Mid Missouri. Each monthly meeting includes an educational program on fiber for Guild members and their guests. The guild hosts at least one nationally known teacher each year for a workshop and lecture. Members have the opportunity to demonstrate their crafts at local festivals and in schools. Guild members may also participate in one or more of several study groups.
The Guild holds an annual holiday exhibition and sale each November.
