Manitoba Weavers and Fibre Artists (MWFA) – A guild where members share knowledge and experience in handweaving and the fibre arts. Many MWFA weavers are also spinners and knitters, and they explore dyeing, braiding, fingerweaving, felting, rug-making and other fibre techniques.

From September to June each year, at monthly meetings in Winnipeg, organized by MWFA‘s volunteer Board, members bring completed projects and other items of interest for show and tell and participate in educational programs.  MWFA maintains an extensive library with a collection of classic and contemporary books and subscriptions to weaving periodicals. Looms and equipment are available for loan to active members.

MWFA offers classes in basic weaving on an irregular basis and workshops in more advanced techniques. Weaving study groups and sample exchanges are organized by guild members.

MWFA welcomes new members, and guests may attend any of our meetings. Please e-mail to request additional details.
