The Mission of the Rocky Mountain Weavers’ Guild is to encourage excellence, to inspire creativity, and to preserve fiber traditions through education.
Donna Brown and Janet Bare have authored an article for the current issue (Spring 2017) of Spindle, Shuttle, and Dyepot (the Handweavers Guild of America main publication for members) about the Natural Dye Garden Project. Entitled “Growing a Dye Garden,” it has some lovely photographs contributed by Donna Brown, Janet Bare and Cathy Jacobus. There are copies in the guild library.

A Call to All Hemp Fiber Artists”!
We have been contacted by the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists (RMSBA) to participate in their upcoming “Cannabis: A Visual Perspective” exhibit. This exhibit is to take place in April of 2017 to showcase works made with cannabis (which in our forum would be hemp fiber). Created works have an opportunity to be offered for sale after the exhibit. Hemp fiber used for making garments and textiles would be a welcome addition to the art images at the exhibit. The RMSBA has reached out to our guild for exhibitors for this upcoming event and we wanted to pass on this opportunity to all members that work with this fiber. Please reach out to our Outreach Coordinator for the contact details for this event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
