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.
Our next guild meeting is October 17, 10:30am – Online
In order to join the meeting you will need a link that will be provided in the next Fiber Focus newsletter. In order to prevent “zoom-bombing” we are not publishing the link to the meeting here. If you are not currently a member of CHG, but would like to attend the meeting, please send a message to our Membership Chair email@example.com , tell us a little bit about yourself and we will forward you a link to the program.
Come with Lynne as she takes you on a journey to India where you can discover some of the amazing sights while hearing about the history of silk and silk weaving in India.
Make sure to get your membership up-to-date and look for an email invitation soon.

a message from our president
Welcome to Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild, a vibrant organization dedicated to fostering and supporting the love of weaving and other related fiber arts. We offer meetings with fiber related programs, classes and workshops for beginners through advanced skill levels, outreach events in Atlanta and surrounding communities, and exhibits.
The recent pandemic has thrown us all a curve ball by preventing in person meetings and classes throughout the spring and into the summer, but the Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild is stepping up to the challenge. We have made some changes to ensure we remain active and relevant during these uncertain times, some of which will be temporary and some of which will become additional features of the fabric of our guild life.
Weekly fiber related demonstrations via Zoom began in May 2020 and will continue each Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. through at least mid-July. We’ll consider continuing past that time frame if the sessions remain popular and well attended. We’ve also modified our biannual Members’ Show to be an online exhibit that we are calling Creative Confinement: Online Fiber Show. This members’ show with a twist will still provide CHG members the opportunity to show their work and compete for prizes in five categories but it will all be shown online. We’ll also have an area to display the works of guild members from neighboring guilds, but those entries won’t be eligible to win CHG awards. Check our website for additional information and a link to register for the show.
We are closely following the reopening plans of the City of Dunwoody and we hope to resume normal face-to-face operations by September.
Our meetings are open to visitors and we hope you’ll drop in and check us out. Watch our online calendar to find out when and where the next meeting will take place.
