Northland Weavers & Fiber Arts Guild Turns 50!
The Northland Weavers and Fiber Arts Guild celebrates its 50th Anniversary this fall with an exhibition in the show cases at The Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City from October 20, 2023 to March 3, 2024. The public is invited to an opening reception on Thursday, October 19, 5:00-7:00 pm. Founded by Marty Fox and Terry Tarnow, the guild has been going strong since 1973. Some of the original members are still an integral part of the Guild.
The guild was originally a “Weavers Guild” whose members had shared interests in weaving, spinning, macrame and dyeing. Within the last 20 years, the guild has expanded to include “Fiber Arts” in its name and members who practice knitting, quilting, felting, basketry and stitchery. The common thread uniting the group is an interest in creating art from fiber. All skill levels are represented and members new to fiber arts are welcome. The exhibition includes the work of 27 current and past members.
The Guild is a member of Michigan League of Handweavers and the Handweavers Guild of America. It has an extensive library and equipment to loan its members.
The guild meets year-round with monthly meetings the third Thursday of the month. Meeting topics include lectures, demonstrations, ”show and tell” of Guild members work, tours of studios, and workshops. Many of our members teach their fiber skills to other members and the broader community. Even seasoned fiber artists are enthusiastic about learning new skills/techniques. Meetings are both in-person and on Zoom. For more information on the guild and meeting times and locations, visit the web site northlandweaversguild.com or contact Michael Brown firstname.lastname@example.org
The Dennos Museum Center is located on the campus of Northwestern MI College in Traverse City. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday 11AM-4PM. Visit dennosmuseum.org for additional information.
