Weavers Guild of Minnesota

A nonprofit organization

If you want to learn the arts of weaving or spinning, where do you go? 

For more than 80 years, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has been THE destination for weaving and spinning education in the Twin Cities. 


We offer classes, member activities such as exhibitions and study groups, talks and workshops. We have classes for learners of all skill levels and interests, offered in a variety of techniques and practices. Classes are taught by a cadre of local experts, nearly all of whom are guild members themselves. 

"The Weavers Guild is a resource for people who are interested in getting started and for people who already know something and want to know more. It has great teachers that are willing to share and help. It's also a really good spot for the brain, because you can come in and be inspired." --guild member and supporter


After more than 20 years in our current location at Textile Center, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota is relocating. Starting January 2023, find us at Open Book, 1011 Washington Ave So, Minneapolis. The Weavers Guild joins the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Milkweed Editions and The Loft Literary Center as member-supported arts organizations housed in Open Book.

A larger guild footprint and modern building amenities means more ways to serve our students and members! We hope you join us in celebrating the success and growth of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota over the last twenty years.

Your donation helps us continue to offer high-quality weaving and spinning arts education in our new location. Will you join our Board of Directors, staff, students and instructors in supporting the Weavers Guild of Minnesota?


We're now reaching students and fiber art appreciators across the country through online classes and talks over Zoom. We've invested in portable equipment, created take-home class kits, and developed videos for beginning classes. With a larger space and room to grow, we're excited about the possibilities for the future. Come learn with us!

"I have been a member continually since 1976.  A great deal of my education has come from the guild, and my wish is that the guild continue to educate and engage weavers."--guild member, student and supporter
