Congratulations to our Associate Dean
Laurie Carlson Steger
Laurie's art piece, Clouds of August:1945, has won the Complex Weaver Award from The Chattahoochee Handweaving Guild. It was juried into the exhibition titled: Transformations, by distinguished juror, Tommye Scanlon.
The exhibition is at The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning in Duluth GA.
The Weavers' Guild of Boston encourages its members to demonstrate weaving at fairs, festivals, and other events and work with educational and social welfare organizations to spread knowledge of and appreciation for the craft. We also support Plimoth-Patuxet Museums with handwoven articles for the Living History village.
Gifts to the Weavers' Guild of Boston
Our Guild enjoys many generous gifts from our members and the public. We greatly appreciate these gifts, as the proceeds support the Guild. The following guidelines govern the Guild’s acceptance of weaving related items.
The donor may send a request and/or pictures of weaving equipment, and/or fiber supplies to the Guild at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A member/team will arrange a visit to assess the condition before accepting the items. Items will be tagged, inventoried, and photographed.
Equipment or supplies, once approved and accepted, must be delivered by the donor to the treasurer’s home in Leominster, MA.
Yarn is not being accepted at this time, due to current overload and maxed out storage capacity. Swanson’s Fabrics in Turners Falls, MA accepts yarn donations. https://www.swansonsfabrics.com/donations
Proceeds derived from the sale of donated items remains the sole property of the Weavers’ Guild of Boston. The Guild will no longer maintain the role of sales agent for estate property, or reimburse a percentage of the proceeds to an outside party estate.
