Encouragement, inspiration, information, education, and FUN – all found in our meetings and workshops!

Monthly meetings are held September through June, each with a “Showcase” session where members share their work and an educational program.

We host several workshops each year, participate in the Sheep to Shawl competition at the annual Puyallup Fair, demonstrate at the Thurston County Fair, and if that’s not challenging enough, we look for outreach opportunities in the community.

Members enjoy the use of a reference lending library and weaving equipment rental. The annual Show And Sale in early December provides a venue for sales of member-made fiber art, garments, and household goods.

We are affiliated with the Association of Northwest Weavers’ Guilds and the Handweavers Guild of America.
