The Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild is a 44-year-old nonprofit, founded by long time member Betty Gaudy and Mary Pendleton, whose mission is to encourage interest and education in the art of handweaving, spinning and related crafts. The 50 member guild has monthly meetings that are held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church at 100 Arroyo Pinon Rd in Sedona from September through June.
Meetings are open to those who are interested in weaving and related crafts with member education programs and community outreach such as volunteering at Rainbow Acres in their weaving department. The Verde Valley Weavers Guild was instrumental in establishing the weaving department at Rainbow Acres. Additionally, each year the guild exhibits their work at the Sedona Public Library, Verde Valley Fair and Clarkdale Library.
