Waterford Weavers Guild Nurturing Fiber Artists Since 1973
Founded in 1973 in Waterford, Virginia, for the purpose of sharing and teaching fiber arts such as weaving, spinning and dyeing, the Waterford Weavers Guild includes members with skills ranging from beginner to master weaver. Other members are experts in the arts of knitting, crocheting, tatting, spinning and felting. Items produced run the gamut from hats, ponchos, jackets, scarves, towels blankets and table linens to wall hangings, tapestries, ties, tartans and baskets.
The annual Waterford Homes Tour and Crafts Exhibit is the primary public event celebrated by the guild. It is held the first full weekend in October in the quaint, 18th-century community of Waterford. The fair attracts about 10,000 daily visitors, with the emphasis on the quality of the crafters. The Guild has been an active participant at the Waterford Fair for over 30 years. All Guild members don period clothing as they demonstrate weaving, spinning and knitting. A variety of one-of-a-kind designer items are for sale.
