The New York Guild of Handweavers (NYGH) provides inspiration, information and mutual support to anyone interested in weaving, tapestry, spinning or fiber arts.
Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. Member skill levels range from beginners to professionals, but everyone has a love for fiber arts. Meetings are free for members.

Zoom Code of Conduct
Our guild offers a safe and welcoming environment to listen, learn, and share ideas. To this end, we ask participants to not operate a motor vehicle while attending our guild meetings and events remotely via Zoom.
The NYGH newsletter comes out regularly before each meeting and has material describing the upcoming meeting, as well as announcements of textile-related shows and activities. It is automatically sent to members.
