Organizational History:

The Indiana Weavers Guild was founded on October 24, 1943 for people interested in weaving. At first the guild only met sporadically, after World War II the organization met monthly to discuss new findings and share information about new equipment and techniques.  The Indiana Weavers Guild also gave demonstrations on weaving, created and held exhibits all over the state, arranged guest speakers, and created a monthly publication on weaving.  The guild disbanded on May 2, 1992.
