Monthly Guild Meeting Programs
Our guild meetings are held on the third Monday of the month from September to May. Doors open at 6 pm and programs begin at 6:30. Meetings in June, July and August are informal, social get together for our members and do not have a program (we do not usually meet in December). Monthly guild meetings are free and open to the public.
January will feature color and warmth in Norwegian coverlets. This will be a presentation by Laurann Gilbertson, chief curator at Vesterheim, the National Norwegian-American Museum and Folk Art School in Deborah, IA (www.vesterheim.org).
Our members offer several classes in the fiber arts. Each class has a fee. Classes are open to the public, although there is an additional charge to non-BSWG members. Our classes for winter and spring 2023 are listed here.
From time to time, we offer special workshops highlighting a particular fiber art skill, often taught by a well-respected member of the regional or national community.
