Monthly meetings and demonstrations are on hold through the end of the year due to Covid-19.

Guilds and Resource Groups

Several textile arts groups call the WHC home.


The Saturday Spinners

The Tatting and Lace Making group meets on the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on the 2nd floor of the mill building. Independent Study Classes are available. Please see our Textile Class Schedules.

The Salem Fiberarts Guild

The Salem Fiberarts Guild (SFG) is a local guild for weavers, spinners, and other fiber enthusiasts, and a member of the state organization, Weaving Guilds of Oregon (WeGO); regional, Associated Northwest Weaving Guilds (ANWG); and national, Handweavers Guild of America (HGA). The SFG meets monthly on the second Saturday of each month — except during the summer months — on the fourth floor of WHC’s Mill building in the Textile Learning Center at 9:30am for coffee and social time, followed by a guild meeting at 10:00am. Programs are presented at each meeting on various aspects of weaving, spinning and related fiber arts. The SFG also meets informally every Friday from 10 to 3 for a fun afternoon of project sharing. Bring a sack lunch and any portable fiber-related project you like. Membership in the SFG is open to anyone interested in fiber arts. Annual dues are $25 for individuals and $32.50 for a family.
