Weaver’s Guild of Greater Baltimore (Maryland)
The Weaver's Guild of Greater Baltimore (Maryland) held a free talk and demonstration of spinning at this year's Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. The guild staffed the skein and garment competition while also guiding visitors to an appreciation of Andean textiles and the weavers who created them. Guild meetings are held in the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City, and visitors are welcome to drop in to learn about guild activities. Workshops, an ongoing weaving school, a "Baby Love" knitting and weaving project for needy infants, mentors, study groups, and rating programs are ways this group increases a general knowledge of fiber arts and encourages the use of them as hobbies and creative activities.
