Golden Gate Weavers Guild is the oldest weaving guild in Northern California. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we are meeting virtually via Zoom on the third Monday of the month. The Guild does not meet in July, August, or December. If you would like to attend one of our virtual meetings or join our Guild, you can contact us at email@example.com. Everyone is welcome!
In 1941, with a membership of 38, an exhibit was given at the Claremont Hotel. It featured six furnished rooms: a colonial and a modern living room, a dining room and a bedroom. All the textiles were handwoven. Three hundred dollars was made and donated to the British War Relief.
During World War II, many members taught weaving at hospitals; many wove baskets and others donated articles to aid charitable institutions. A Citation was awarded to the Guild by the Disabled Army Veterans in recognition of meritorious services rendered.
Our Service Project
Last fall we created 55 dish towels (and a few other items) and donated them to Meals on Wheels of Alameda County. They were warmly received by housebound seniors as part of a "care package" organized by Meals on Wheels. Care packages were given to over 3,000 seniors last December, and our dish towels were a small but heart-felt contribution to this effort.
et's do it again!
No obligation, but any member of Golden Gate is invited to weave 1, 2, 4 or more dish towels.
Please check out our Show and Tell Galleries. Here are a few submissions.
