Volunteers make it happen.

The Weavers Guild of Minnesota was founded as an all-volunteer organization in 1940. WGM now has grown into a 501c3 with staff that performs day-to-day operations and runs the organizations operations. We rely on our generous volunteer community to help serve as ambassadors of the organization’s mission as well as reach new audiences at events, exhibits, and festivals. We’d love to have you contribute your time and talent to help the mission of WGM: to preserve and advance the arts of weaving, spinning and dyeing. Join us!

Fairs and Festivals – year round
