Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild
The mission of the Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild is to promote and preserve weaving and other fiber related arts.
We do this through education, programs and outreach to the community.
CHG Face-to-Face Programs Suspended due to Coronavirus Restrictions
Check Back Soon for an Exciting Announcement!
Dear Members & Visitors –
We are committed to providing the opportunity to students whose Spring Quarter classes were interrupted the opportunity to complete their projects as soon as reasonable. Please be advised that even if the N. DeKalb Arts Center is unlocked for either Spruill Arts or Dunwoody Players, Room 1 will remain locked until the Board is ready to resume Guild programs.
Conversations with … Online Demonstrations for Members
CHG is bringing the CONVERSATIONS WITH… study group to you by conducting on-line demonstrations starting in May. Members will receive Zoom Meeting invitations by email. Please look for your invitation to our Tuesday evening CONVERSATIONS WITH… at 7PM.

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.
