The New Orleans Guild encourages several study groups for members to strengthen their knowledge and skills in particular areas of interest.
The Tuesday Weavers' focus is to support wayward weavers and get them back to their looms. We meet every Tuesday from 10:30am - 2:30pm usually at Bev Madere's but have been known to do "house calls" for neglected looms and frustrated weavers. Beginning October, Tuesday Weavers will meet on the second Tuesday of the month.
