We are now able to take PAYPAL® payments for Memberships and our Classes and Workshops!
The Edmonton Weavers’ Guild was founded in 1953 to encourage local weavers and spinners to meet, exchange ideas and learn. Initally meeting in members homes, we have had a home in locations such as the Southwest Cultural Centre, the King Edward School and the Prince of Wales Armouries. Now we are located in the Strathcona Community League Hall, at 10139-87 Ave. Today many of our members are also dyers and felters, and love to embellish their handwork. Our phone number is 780-425-9280 (please leave a message and we will get back to you).
Currently we have about 100 members from Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
Every year we offer classes and workshops in the fibre arts as well as knitting and dyeing.
Pictures from our 2016 January Scarf Bomb
Members of the Edmonton Weavers’ Guild knitted and wove up a storm of scarves, cowls and toques. On Thursday, Jan.22 these were placed up on the fence near the “Ice on Whyte” Festival in Old Strathcona. A tag on each item described who made them and invited anyone in need to take one.
Many of the yarns were donated by Tim Hortons coffee shops through their program “Warm Wishes”. Syl from Lettuce Knits in Ontario sent us 3 huge boxes of these great red yarns to knit up here in Alberta. We hope the recipients will stay warm wearing them.
We are guild members of the Hand Weavers, Spinners and Dyers of Alberta, Focus on Fibre Alberta and the Association of Northwest Weavers Guilds.
Our guild offers many resources to members, including study groups, equipment loans, and entrance of woven goods in our annual sale. We publish a newsletter five times a year detailing events and items of interest to our members. There are also four quarterly annual meetings, often with guest speakers. We have an extensive library – please see our list of books and periodicals here.
