Weavers Guild of Minnesota

A nonprofit organization

If you want to learn, support, and celebrate weaving and spinning, you've come to the right place!

For more than 80 years, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has been the destination for weaving and spinning in the Twin Cities. We are a weaving and spinning guild dedicated to teaching new learners, celebrating our craft, and sharing what we know in order to preserve and uplift these arts. We are passionate about member and student success.


You can find us at Open Book (1011 Washington Ave So, Minneapolis). We are one of the lucky few guilds in the country who can offer year-round learning opportunities thanks to our light and bright classrooms, guild-owned equipment, and dedicated staff and instructors. Generous member and community support ensures WGM has a robust learning environment, offering more than 100 classes every year along with opportunities for members to share what they know in peer-to-peer learning.  

The click and bounce of floor looms, the whir of spinning bobbins, and lilting chatter of our members, instructors and students is the soundtrack to our daily celebration of all things weaving and spinning. Swing by for a visit during our shop hours to see (and hear!) for yourself.

"If I had the time, I would take every class that was offered." --student response to class survey 


Your donation helps us continue to offer high-quality weaving and spinning arts education and provide opportunities to gather, build on and share what we know.

"This was probably the best organized, most welcoming class I've taken. I love the new site!" --student in an intermediate weaving class, one of many classes offered by the Weavers Guild


We're 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. Celebrate the bright future of weaving and spinning with us!
