Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all guild
activities remain suspended. For the safety of patrons and staff, Textile
Center is open by appointment only. Once Textile Center is able to be
fully open, ‘in person’ guild activities can resume. In the meantime, we
are working on presenting you a virtual class schedule! Until we can meet
again in person, classes will be conducted via Zoom. We hope you will
participate, supporting our guild and instructors. For now, this will be
our best option to stay connected and keep our hands busy! If you have any
questions, please contact Debbie Johnson at
