A Community of Makers

Founded in 1948, The Handweavers' Guild of Connecticut invites handweavers, spinners and other fiber artists from all levels of experience to exchange ideas and share knowledge, to encourage and educate, to stimulate creativity and to challenge their abilities in fiber art techniques.


Membership is open to anyone who loves the fiber arts. If you would like to meet other fiber artists, you are welcome to attend one of our meetings and see what we are all about.

The Handweavers' Guild of Connecticut is now a member of MAFA!

HGC has joined MAFA (MidAtlantic Fiber Association), which means that each HGC member is now also a MAFA member.


Check out all that MAFA has to offer including some new virtual classes and the 2023 Conference landing page.


MAFA is encouraging members who want to be on the mailing list for twice-monthly updates to sign up either at the bottom of every web page, or the direct link is http://eepurl.com/hTauz9.
