About the Guild

The Weavers Guild of Greater Kansas City was organized in 1954 to promote hand weaving, spinning and fiber arts. Our mission is to further the art and interest in hand weaving and related fiber arts for members and the public. We do this by conducting regular meetings, demonstrations, and workshops in basic and advanced techniques. We warmly welcome newcomers and all levels of proficiency and areas of interest in the fiber arts.

Meet our Board Members

Jacqueline Jacobson, President

Jacqueline loves many textile crafts, but her main love is weaving. She bought her first loom 20 years ago--a 4 harness Leclerc from Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. It belonged to a woman who had purchased it, warped it once and passed before she could weave on it. Jacqueline's second floor loom is an 8 harness Baby Wolf purchased locally from a widower who was selling it after his wife purchased it, warped it once and passed before she could weave on it. Jacqueline considers that she weaves for both of these ladies with every warp that goes on these looms.

Janet has been weaving for 40 years on an AVL 16-harness, production, dobby loom. She creates wearable art called "sharf"--part shawl, part scarf. She also weaves fabric up to 45" wide and 10-35 yards long for other projects. Janet has recently learned how to make Temari balls--a Japanese embroidery technique.
