About Us

Spinning, weaving, wool, North Carolina South Carolina


Organized in the early 1970's as the Charlotte Handweavers Guild, our group has evolved into a regional membership of people interested in all aspects of the fiber arts: spinning, weaving, knitting, doll making, surface design, basketry, beadwork etc.

We meet in Gastonia, NC at 2020 Remount Rd., 28052, at 2:00 pm on the third Sunday of each month, September-May. We offer programs related to fiber arts each month, as well as workshops, several times each year, with regionally and nationally known artists. Visitors and guests are welcome.
