If you have always appreciated beautiful fibers, baskets, dying and felting; loved to touch and handle them, then we are the place for you.
Our organization thrives on teaching and improving weaving and spinning techniques for the novice or those who want to explore gorgeous colorways, and designing clothing or fibers. We have the resources for you.
Montana has an abundance of home grown raw fibers in need of new and experienced spinners and weavers: rabbits, goats, sheep, alpaca, llamas, and the list goes on.
We have access to silk and cotton, and the newer fibers made from soy byproducts, corn, and bamboo.
Our Guild History
We were established in 1957 as the "Great Falls MIA Weaver's Guild," a subsidiary of the Montana Institute of the Arts, to serve the needs of hand spinners and weavers.
Through the years we became an independent guild have grown and become active in festivals, school activities, community activities and other events by providing demonstrations and instruction in the fiber arts.
Within this organization, increasing interest in the spinning and weaving is stimulated through preparation and participation in educational programs.
Sharing an appreciation of the value of these fiber arts is a part of the heritage of Montana with members and the primary foundation of the Guild.
