Welcome! 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.
We start every meeting with a business meeting, followed by a fiber-related 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. Bring a project to work on during the meeting if you like.
12:00-1:00 pm Weavers Study Group – A weaving study group meets an hour before regular guild meetings. People bring their portable looms to work on weaving projects, get help with a weaving problem, share techniques, or use the time to use the guild library. If you have a weaving topic you’d like help with at a study group, contact us.
1:00 pm Business Meeting and Presentation
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. We have an annual project work day in January and a potluck followed by a dyepot in August. Don’t miss these special events.
Become a Member!
The Guild has some equipment available such as weaving looms, a spinning wheel and carder. These are available to borrow with your guild membership. It’s a good way to see if you like the equipment before you invest, or want to do a small project without having to purchase 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
Join at any meeting, or contact Leslie Hall, 507-269-1172, for an address to send a check.
