Welcome!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!

SUMMER 2018 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGEGreetings to our fellow weavers! Welcome to our new website! We are excited to begin our new calendar year (June to May) by kicking off with a fresh look, with new ideas, and with new friends.
I take on my new two year term as President of the Guild with excitement and anticipation of what we might be exploring in the upcoming months. I have been a member of this organization since 1980. Sitting in my home weaving studio at one of my looms is where my heart beat is. Having a new project to plan, or weaving furiously to get another beautiful textile off the loom is always so exciting. There are so many weaving structures to explore; so many different kinds of yarns to put together; and so many projects to try out - I will weave the rest of my life time and never reach the end of the possibilities. This is why I love weaving so much!
We invite you to find out more about our organization and discover all that it can offer you, whether you are a beginning, modern weaver, or a seasoned traditional weaver - we have something for everyone! If you want to find out more, check out the Contact Us page to reach one of our board members. We can't wait to hear from you and meet you at one of our events!
