The Zumbro River Fiber Arts Guild is a group of fiber enthusiasts from Southeastern Minnesota who meet once a month to knit, crochet, weave, spin, felt, dye, quilt, talk, network, and play with fiber. For a sneak peek watch this video produced by KSMQ for their ‘Off 90’ broadcast.
The Zumbro River Fiber Arts Guild normally meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Oronoco Community Center 115 2nd St. NW, Oronoco, MN. (Click here for a map) The entrance is on the West side of the building and parking is either there or on the North side. A couple of exceptions to the meeting schedule are in January when we plan an all-day fiber play day, and in August when we have a pot-luck picnic and workshop at a park.
The meetings start at 1:00 p.m. and include a short business meeting, show-and-tell, and a speaker presentation. On the same day as the meeting, there is a Weaver’s Focus Group that meets at 12:00 for troubleshooting or help with a weaving project.
