Covid-19 Update

As of June 1, 2020, The Lethbridge Weaver's Guild is back in our Casa Studio with several precautions being taken. A very limited number of people are allowed in the studio at once and many cleaning procedures are being undertaken with the support of Casa staff. At this time, we are unable to offer any classes.

We are so pleased to be able to continue our craft and unite with our fellow weavers again!  Prior to this, we have been keeping in touch over email and sharing projects, resources and support.

Please continue to watch our website and social media pages for updates.  We do not currently have any sale or market opportunities, but we hope that will be able to participate in upcoming holiday events this fall & winter, if possible.

Thank you for your continued support!
