Residency at the American Swedish Institute

In celebration of the exhibition Karin Larsson: Let the Hand Be Seen at the American Swedish Institute (June – October 2024), members of our Rag Rug and Scandinavian Study Groups are demonstrating rug weaving techniques in the third floor ballroom of ASI’s Turnblad Mansion on select days.

Want to pop in? Visit us at ASI from 5-8pm on the following Thursday nights: June 13 and 27, July 11 and 25, August 8 and 22, September 5 and 26, and October 10 and 24. ASI offers free admission on Thursdays after 3pm.


Interested in weaving or spinning? You’ve come to the right place.

At the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM), we teach people how to spin and weave, offering a variety of techniques on various equipment. The Guild offers classes both in-person at the Weavers Guild and online, with opportunities to learn in a non-competitive and supportive environment.

Guild membership is open to anyone interested in weaving and spinning, with a discount offered for those aged 30 and under.  Guild members save 10% on class/workshop registration and have access to equipment, small group meetings (Interest Groups), library privileges and more. Sign up online or join in person.

At our space in Minneapolis, we have dedicated classrooms and a workspace with looms, spinning wheels, and other tools. The guild shop sells specialty equipment, books, yarn and other fiber supplies. Shop for your next project–or take a brief tour of our space–during store hours.

Sign up for our Monthly Newsletter to hear about class opportunities, events and talks, and shop sales. Visit us and be inspired!
