About the Guild

The Guild was organized in 1954 to promote handweaving, spinning, felting, and all other fiber interests in the KC area. We warmly welcome all fiber enthusiasts.

2021 Community Service

We are supporting reStart, an organization that for 40 years has provided Kansas City’s most vulnerable population with housing services.

Throughout February we will be collecting new or gently used blankets and/or towels. Drop off your donation at Janet Meddings' house.

We also have a fun show-and-tell segment in which fiber artists reveal their latest creation. Guests are always welcome.
