- Our auction was a huge success! We raised over $3400 for two charities — Lodestar which serves the homeless and Seeds for Autism that provides vocational training for adults with autism. Thank you for your donations and for bidding!
- Check out our latest newsletter for most up-to-date happenings.
We meet each month in the Outreach Center of the First United Methodist Church, 15 East 1st Ave., Mesa, AZ 85210.
Look for the signs that will point you to the outreach building in the back of the church, itself. Or look for the hive of activity, cars parking, people saying hello to each other, carrying in their items for show and tell, etc! We’ll look forward to meeting you!
About our guild
Telaraña is a fiber arts guild that promotes all of the fiber arts including weaving, spinning, basketry, knitting, crochet, lace-making, felting, dyeing and more. We welcome everyone – our members have a wide range of expertise from beginners to advanced. All you need is an interest in the fiber arts, enthusiasm and a willingness to be involved in Guild activities. Our name means “spider web” in Spanish and symbolizes the connections we feel with others who love the fiber arts.
Since 1978, the Telaraña Weavers and Spinners Guild has been affiliated with the Handweavers Guild of America and the Arizona Federation of Weavers and Spinners Guilds.
At each meeting we have “show and tell” where members share items that they completed during the month. If you are planning to bring something to share, please complete “Show and Tell form” so that we may keep a record of our creations!
