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. A fiber program is presented followed by a Show and Tell session and a business meeting.
Some guild members are also members of the Michigan League of Handweavers and Wisconsin Handweavers as well as the Midwest Weavers Association. Many of our members show and sell their fiber art at local Art Galleries. The Buellwood Weaver and Fiber Guild also participates in hosting the bi-annual U.P. Weaver's Exchange conference. In June 2011 we hosted the Midwest Weaver's Conference, 'Northern Wefts 2011' in Hancock Michigan.
New members are always welcome to our monthly meetings
