Parking: The Textile Center has purchased a parking lot on University Avenue in the same block as the Center, “uphill” before you reach the stop on Malcolm Street. Turn right into the lot and walk a few steps down the hill to the Textile Center. You can also still park directly behind the building, but we no longer lease space in the Home Health or computer company lots adjacent to the TC rear lot. You may be ticketed or towed if you park in one of those lots.

Light Rail: The Textile Center is on the University Avenue light rail, with a stop adjacent to the Textile Center.

Fees: Cost of Membership is generally $25.00. We are currently moving our fiscal year to match our program year, not the calendar year. In the transitional year of January 2019 through August 30, 2019, membership dues are reduced to account for the shorter year. We return to regular dues September 1, 2019 for 2019-2020. See the current membership form for specific information.

The Guild offers a special membership price to members who take out a Textile Center membership at the same time. See the current membership form for specific information.
