Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild

MARCH MEETING - Weaving for Wearables with Midge Jackson

We all have had the project that started with high hopes and turned into a disappointment. Maybe it was the weave structure, maybe the density - sometimes it's the pattern used to make the garment. At the next meeting, Midge Jackson will talk to us about working with our handwovens to create clothing. She will share tips and hints on creating successful garments and wearables from our handwovens. Weaving decisions such as fiber choices, set, pattern, etc. will be covered. Design options, how to design, tools for designing, and what designs work best for handwovens, will be covered as well.


Anne will share her experience from her visit to the world famous Les Gobelins tapestry workshop. Come vicariously visit this storied textiles center through Anne's stories.



The Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild is dedicated to promoting the art of weaving and the craft of fiber work through education, member activities and mutual support. The Guild promotes fellowship among members with bi-monthly meetings, educational workshops and community demonstrations. The DHSG biennial juried show gives each member an opportunity to show off their latest treasures. We invite you to join us and experience the camaraderie of our members and the interesting topics at one of our general meetings.

Guild members meet odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September and November), usually on the first Saturday at 9:30 am, at The Point, Center for Arts and Education on the campus of the CC Young Memorial Home, located at 4829 West Lawther Drive, in East Dallas near White Lake. We enjoy friendships, old and new, and learn from speakers on a wide range of subjects and areas of interest to our members. Each meeting presents a different topic, many times a hands-on topic, and each year our program chairperson tempts members to experiment with a new range of ideas to explore.

If you currently live in North Texas, or plan to visit our area, please join us at one of our regular meetings, or sign up for one of our workshops or special events. For more details, contact us!
