Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild

We do this through education, programs and outreach to the community.

Exploring my new loom – 32 shaft Louet Megado Compu-dobby

a message from our president

Welcome to Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild.  Please explore our website to find out who we are and what programs we offer.  We have a strong educational mission and offer a multitude of classes over fall, winter, spring and summer quarters.  In addition we host regional, national, or international experts in weaving for workshops three times a year.

Because of the Coronovirus outbreak the Guild is suspending programs through the Summer of 2020.  While many of our classes and workshops do not fit the category of “large group” meetings, there are many of our members who might be members of high risk groups.  Additionally, the Guild uses a building from the City of Dunwoody.  The City has asked us to suspend all programs for now.

We hope to resume normal face-to-face operations by September.

Our meetings are open to visitors and we hope that you decide to drop in at one of them.  Generally they are held on a third (3rd) Saturday of the month, but when workshops are scheduled, they occur on the Friday evening prior.  Check our calendar to be sure.
