Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild

MAY MEETING - LES GOBELINS TAPESTRY WORKSHOP with Anne Cameron

NOTE: This month's meeting location has changed!! Please join us at St. Barnabas Presbyterian church at 1220 W Belt Line Rd. in Richardson. This location will only be for this month. See you there!!

In May I will take you along with me to tour a fascinating part of weaving history at home and abroad!  I have the pleasure of sharing two weaving tours with you---

The Faribault Woolen Mills in Faribault, Minnesota, established in the late 1800's, and Les Gobelins Manufacture in Paris, France.  Faribault Mills is one of the few working mills in the U.S. which continue to make goods from fiber to finish. 

 

 

 

Les Gobelins  has been in nearly continuous production of fine tapestries since the 1600s.  I have beautiful pictures, some stories, and some video to share with you!      ---Anne Cameron

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
