Study Groups

Study Groups are a great way to learn and share weaving experiences! The Illinois Prairie Weavers Guild has the following active study groups.

Fox Valley Study Group

The Fox Valley Study group meets year round (usually!) every third Thursday of the month at
1 p.m. virtually or in-person. Our goal as a study group is to study some aspect of weaving while also providing an experience for people with an interest in weaving or other fiber arts that helps them achieve their goals. Our group is open to all, either as a core member or as someone that simply wants to drop in from time to time and share experiences and difficulties with their projects. We have members at all levels, from beginner to expert, that can offer insights and options. We also have members interested in weaving but who do not necessarily weave.

Each year we pick an area of study that will be the focus of our presentation to the guild. As much as we would like members to be involved in our guild presentation, it is not required. We want our group to be informative but also fun. This group may be the perfect introduction to study groups, both for people who are not sure they want to join one as well as for those who want a bit more structure for furthering their study.

A Strong Beginning Study Group

This is a new study group is in the beginning stages of forming! Meeting time and location are still undetermined, but it will probably be once a month, meeting in the western suburbs. This study group is intended to bring guidance and encouragement to newer weavers, or weavers who have been away from their looms for a while. If you are interested in joining and haven’t yet already done so, please contact me so I can include you in our organizing communications.
