|Welcome To The
Awards, Competitions &
Organized in the early 1970's as
the Charlotte Handweavers Guild,
our group has evolved into a
regional membership of people
interested in all aspects of the fiber
arts: spinning, weaving, knitting,
doll making, surface design,
basketry, beadwork etc.
We meet in Gastonia, NC at Arts on
Main 212 West Main Ave at 2:00
pm on the third Sunday of each
month, September -November and
Jan-May. We offer programs
related to fiber arts each month, as
well as workshops, several times
each year, with regionally and
nationally known artists. Visitors
and guests are welcome.
A handwork group meets monthly,
usually on the second Saturday of
each month, for a potluck lunch,
rotating among the homes of the
members. We bring food to share,
our spinning wheels, knitting and
other projects we are working on

Sue Helmken "A Creative Path"
We have all hit our version of "Writers' Block"
whether we're spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting.
Sometimes the ideas are just not there. Sue will
present us with a few ways to get back in the game
- a new approach or new attitude perhaps?
