Our mission is to encourage the art and enjoyment of fiber crafts

The Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts, originally called the Redwood Empire Handweavers & Spinners Guild, has been in existence in Sonoma County since 1949. Members are spinners, weavers, tapestry artists, felters, basket makers, dyers and surface designers. Members reside, and create, in Mendocino, Lake, Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties. Donations help the Guild continue its mission through outreach programs, presentations and fiber art workshops.

The Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts has expanded your exposure to the world of textiles, sparked your creativity, improved your skills and provided a space to meet others who are passionate about fiber arts. The Guild has provided handwork enrichment programs in local schools and at the Sonoma County Fair and other community events. If you wish you could do more to continue our mission, YOU CAN! Include the Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts in your will. Your gift or bequest will assure that our Guild continues serving the handwork community. The Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. All gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.
