Founded in 1946, the Southern California Handweavers’ Guild (SCHG) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of Greater Los Angeles. We are dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practice of handweaving and textile related crafts.
We are a community of fiber-enthusiasts representing a wide range of experience and interests. The guild meets on the second Saturday of every month from September through June (except November when we have our Weaving and Fiber Festival) for a fiber-related programs and workshops.
