About Us

Our History

The Humboldt Handweavers and Spinners Guild was established in 1971 - Henrietta Chizzola is listed as our Charter Member. Membership has grown to 80+ over the years.


The guild provides an exhibit and demonstrations yearly at the Humboldt County Fair in August with a Sheep To Shawl event on the last day of the fair.  We also sponsor awards for Natural Fiber entries at the fair. 


The guild participates in the Natural Fiber Fair each September with sponsorship and a Fiber Circle gathering area. 

The guild has monthly meetings with textile programs.
