The Buellwood Weaver and Fiber Guild began with Dorothea Buell in Chassell Michigan. She had 17 looms at her home and developed a 17 member  weaving guild. The Buellwood Weaver and Fiber Guild has been in existence since the early 1950's and has varied in size between 20 - 26 members.

The Buellwood Weaver and Fiber Guild holds monthly meetings the 3rd Monday of each month at 12:00 noon at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Hancock, Michigan with the year starting in October. A fiber program is presented followed by a Show and Tell session and a business meeting.  New members are always welcome to our monthly meetings.   For more information about the guild go check out http://mwc2011.blogspot.com/.
