The Weavers Guild South welcomes men and women with various levels of weaving and interests and skills. Its purpose is to create a supportive environment to nurture creativity and individuality. We bring together people interested in sharing an appreciation of fiber arts and provide a forum that demonstrates the versatility of fibers.

The Guild offers quality workshops and programs in weaving, spinning and such related areas as basketry, felting, dyeing and off-loom weaving, providing hands-on experience and exposure to the multiple facets of this extensive field. These presentations utilize the expertise of the Guild members as well as professionals in the field. The Guild also promotes fiber arts through its involvement in Community education activities.
