Since its founding in 1940, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has established itself as a nationally-recognized resource for the arts of weaving, spinning, and dyeing. Membership has grown from the original twenty-six members, including famed weaver Hilma Berglund, to more than 600 members in 2019.
The Guild serves nearly 700 new and experienced fiber artists each year through classes and events. WGM offers beginning classes in weaving (floor loom, rigid heddle, and off-loom techniques), and in spinning (wheel, drop spindle, e-spinner) along with a variety of intermediate and advanced classes and workshops. Member events include meetings and lectures, self-study interest groups, exhibition opportunities, and the annual guild sale.
WGM was the catalyst in the formation of the Textile Center, where the Guild currently maintains classroom, retail, and library space. WGM’s on-site shop, Fiber Source, sells new and donated yarn, books, and equipment and is a dealer for Schacht Spindle.
