Benefits of Membership

Get Involved with the Guild

The Guild is organized around talented people who volunteer their time to serve on the board, participate in committees, and share their knowledge of the fiber arts. We are always seeking participation by anyone interested in contributing time and knowledge to the organization. Please contact a board member if you would like to get involved in any way.

Fellowship & Community

The Guild fosters a community of like-minded creatives and provides an opportunity to kindle friendships, and expand artistic skills.  We reach out to a wide variety of individuals by providing weaving, spinning and fiber art demonstrations to local groups and organizations and at events. 

Continuing Education

We continue to grow as fiber artists through workshops, and study groups. The Guild works with fiber artists, educators and other non-profit organizations to host and facilitate workshops for our members. 

Scholarships

The Guild offers an Educational Scholarship Program that provides financial assistance for classes, workshops or seminars. Any Guild member in good standing who has been a member for at least one year may apply for acceptance. The purpose of these scholarships is to enhance the applicant's personal growth and cultivate growth and enrich creativity within the Guild community. Recipients are required to share the results of their study with the Guild. The Scholarship Committee, in cooperation with the applicant, will determine the award amount and how the applicant will satisfy this obligation to the Guild. This might be accomplished by a program lecture or a workshop or other means to be determined. Any monies earned from subsequent workshops etc., will be credited to the Scholarship fund. Applications are reviewed quarterly.

Library

The Guild maintains an extensive library of books, magazines, videos and tools.  Members in good standing are welcome to check out a book or video or rent equipment for personal use. 

Community Service

The Guild is working with Kansas City Hospice House to provide projects for family members to work on while sitting with hospice patients. Each packet (contained in a sealable plastic bag) should contain instructions and project-specific supplies. For example, small embroidery projects, coloring pages with colored pencils or crayons, small weaving project, etc.  Please bring packets to any Weaver’s Guild meeting and turn them in to Jackie Kincaid. She coordinates this effort with the Hospice House.

Dual Memberships & Creative Hand

Your membership to the Weavers Guild automatically entitles you to memberships in the Fiber Guild of Greater Kansas City (non-voting) and the Kansas Alliance of Weavers and Spinners. These local organizations also encourage and sponsor fiber-related activities and events.  

Our Creative Hand sale event showcases handmade items from members of both Guilds. This is the original pop-up shop, and it has been an annual event for over 30 years. The sale event usually enjoys a crowd of over a thousand people coming in search of fiber arts they can see, touch, and wear.
