The Swatch Archives is a collection of woven samples made by members. The collection is an excellent resource for students and members for project inspiration. It spans several decades of the Guild’s existence, reflecting the history of weaving. The structures, materials, and the colors of the swatches each reflect a moment in time and place.
Each swatch is attached to a weaving draft, and the swatches are organized by weave structure. Anyone can access the swatches, but they may not leave WGM. The collection is stored in WGM’s spinning classroom.
The Swatch Archives were featured in WGM’s 75th Anniversary Book, A Thread Through Time.
