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.
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.
The Glenna Harris Weavers Guild strives to encourage its members to explore all aspects of hand weaving and spinning and to pass on the love of our craft with public demonstrations and classes.
Our longtime member Steve (Viva) Deshon left us on November 13th. She was multi-talented, fun-loving, vibrant, and generous. We will miss her but always remember her.
