The Calumet Art Center is a proud member of the Buellwood Fiber & Weavers Guild and Michigan Weavers Guild!
We are pleased to announce that we are members of the Buellwood Fiber & Weavers Guild. The Guild began with Dorothea Buellwood in Chassell, MI. Dorothea had 17 looms at her home and developed a 17 member weaving guild. It has been in existence since the early 1950′s and has varied in size between 15 and 20 members. They are happy to assist with answers to all who are interested in weaving, as their objective is to continue to support this art form for the future.
