HISTORY

      The 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]
