a message from our president

Welcome to Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild, a vibrant organization dedicated to fostering and supporting weaving and other fiber related arts. We offer meetings, programs, exhibits, workshops, classes, and demonstrations at community events.

Due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic our face-to-face contact has been suspended. The safety of our members is of utmost importance so we will be holding meetings and classes via Zoom until it is deemed safe for in-person contact to resume. We will be closely following the CDC and the State of Georgia for information and guidelines on the pandemic. When it is safe to resume in-person events we will announce it in our Fiber Focus newsletter and post it here on our website.

We welcome visitors to our meetings, held each month except for July, August, and December. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to secretary@chgweavers.org and request the Zoom link. Members will receive the link in their Fiber Focus newsletter.
