The Weavers Guild of Minnesota released the book A Thread Through Time: New Woven Projects from the Swatch Archives in May. The book launch was the first in a year-long series of events celebrating 75th anniversary of the guild.
The anniversary book includes the story of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, a survey of textiles from the past 75 years through swatches and patterns, and inspirational and beautiful projects made by 47 member artists. Some of the pieces displayed in the book are currently in a special exhibit at the Hennepin History Museum.
“A Loom Here, a Loom There: 75 Years of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota” opened on June 15 and will be up through Sept. 14. Throughout the year, the guild will be organizing and taking part in various events across the state. For more information about upcoming events and to purchase a the book, visit weaversguildmn.org.
