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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
Our guild has donated 55 handwoven items (dish towels or pot holders) to the Meals on Wheels of Alameda County. Our donations were part of a "holiday care package" that Meals on Wheels put together in December. The care packages went to house-bound residents in the Berkeley area.
Please check out our Show and Tell Galleries. Here are a few submissions.
