Read about the Handweavers’ Guild of Peoria – both past and present. 

May2012NL

 

A great time was had by all! Guest and visitors enjoyed a morning of weaving and fiber arts as members of the Handweavers’ Guild of Peoria demonstrated and taught potential fiber artists.

Image

On hand were several looms, a drop spindle, fiber combing, braiding and basketry.

Image

Participants could try their hand at all of these crafts and even take home a small loom to continue weaving.

Thank you Dunlap Library and our own Melissa Wyeneth for allowing us to hold our open house in your beautiful facility!
