Education

The Glenna Harris Guild has an active education program with hands on activities for both young people and adults. Each year guild members participate at county fairs and special events at not-for-profits. Our educational programs can be used in school classrooms and for local youth groups. See our Resources page for links to projects and instructions. Please contact us for more information.

Exchange

The Glenna Harris Guild has a sister guild in Guatemala, Grupo Tejedoras Teixchel in San Pedro la Laguna, with whom they exchange information. The Guild has sponsored a membership in Weave a Real Peace (WARP) for their sister guild.

In 2014 the guild and some of its members sent 11 pairs of gently used hand carders to Guatemala to be used by the women of Mayan Hands who are creating felt articles for sale to help support their families.

Remembering Donna Alger

A founding member of the Glenna Harris Weavers Guild, Donna Alger, left us on May 8th. She was multi-talented, fun-loving, vibrant, and generous. We miss her greatly but will remember her always.
