Fairbanks Weavers' and Spinners' Guild was founded by 11 weavers
in 1952 and received 501-c-3 status in 1985. In 1991 the guild
rented studio space in the Lathrop Building, an old building in
downtown Fairbanks. The Guild secured the UAF looms which had
been in storage since 1987 and began the UAF Weaving program
again in the fall of 1991. Weaving has been part of the UAF
curriculum since 1927, in Home Ecomonics and cross referenced
with the Art
Department. [Click here to view a detailed Guild history]
