Welcome! The Zumbro River Fiber Arts Guild is a group of fiber enthusiasts from Southeastern Minnesota who meet once a month to knit, crochet, tat, bobbin lace, weave, spin, felt, dye, talk about and play with fiber. For a sneak peek watch this video produced by KSMQ for their ‘Off 90’ broadcast.
We start every meeting with conversation while settling in to work on projects! Then after the business meeting and an informative presentation, we end with a show-and-tell so that everyone’s work has a chance to be seen. Our meetings are usually held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, visitors and guests are always welcome.
12:00-1:00 pm Weavers Study Group – A weaving study group meets an hour and a half before regular guild meetings. People bring their portable looms to work on weaving projects or use the time to use the guild library. If you have a weaving topic you’d like help with phone Nancy Ellison at 507-732-5281 ahead of time so she can bring information or samples from her files.
1:00 pm The business meeting and topic will begin.
We usually meet at the Oronoco Community Center, 115 2nd St. NW, Oronoco, MN. (Click here for a map) Enter from the parking lot on the west side and take a left turn. We are meeting in the big room on the right side of the hallway, just past the bookshelves.
For several meetings a year, our meetings become longer to allow us to enjoy afternoons of dyeing or weaving. There are trips to fiber mills and artist showings. Keep an eye on our calendar and don’t miss these special events.

The Guild has some equipment available such as: table looms, spinning wheel and carder these are available to borrow with your guild membership. It’s a good way to see if you want to spin or weave before you invest in the equipment. We also have an extensive library with fiber books and magazines with many types of fiber crafts represented.
Yearly Membership from September to September – $20.00
