Established in 1942, Weavers of Orlando is a nonprofit organization of over 100 members from the Central Florida area who are interested in the Fiber Arts.
The Guild participates in Florida Tropical Weavers Guild (FTWG) conferences along with Handweavers Guild of America (HGA) activities.
We also host an annual Holiday Sale in December each year.
A bimonthly newsletter, Fibergramme, with handwoven samples is published for members. Weaving instructions are also available for members who wish to learn to weave.
Monthly Meetings are usually held the 3rd Saturday of the month at Westminster Winter Park Towers, 1111 South Lakemont Avenue, Winter Park FL 32792. An informal gathering begins at 9:30 am for those who would like to have a chat with members about solving technical problems and obtaining new sources of tools and supplies. A business meeting follows at 10 am followed by a formal presentation by an experienced fiber artist or guest speaker. The meetings wrap up about one-ish.
Three-day workshops with nationally known instructors are held 2-3 times a year. Mini-workshops are occasionally held after lunch for a small materials fee.
