The Guild Community

The Weavers’ Guild of Rochester is a nonprofit organization whose roots go back to 1946. Members come from across Rochester, the Genesee Region of New York and beyond online. We gather to promote our craft, to educate others and provide a welcoming place for fiber enthusiasts. We embrace the diversity of tradition while encouraging innovation in the fiber arts.

The Weaving & Fiber Arts Center

The Center is a unique learning place in the region. Our studio classrooms are available for adults and youth who register to learn to knit, weave, spin, felt and more. Our instructors bring a breadth of expertise and share that talent with students. Learning is the heart and soul of the Guild. The Center is the best articulation of our mission.

Guild Programs & Workshops

The Guild offers a monthly lecture program that highlights an artist or a topic. Workshops are held 2 or 3 times a year for in-depth study on techniques that stimulate the creative work of our members. An evening meeting each month focuses on a fiber art topic and expands our time together.

Holiday Sale

The Guild sponsors an annual sale of hand-made goods in early November. Members offer hats, scarves, wearable art, jewelry, household goods and fine crafts for sale. There are also “hands on” opportunities in the demonstration room. Come to buy or learn about fiber arts and the Guild.
