Guilds

Member guilds of CNCH are handweaving and spinning guilds in communities throughout Northern California and Northern Nevada.  These groups are the local organizations where our individual members meet and enjoy the benefits of guild participation and being a part of CNCH.

To find a guild that meets near you,  check out the CNCH Guilds list below.  Meeting times and locales do vary from time to time, so check with the guild contact for confirmation of specific meetings.  You can also check for current meeting information or guild news in the Posts list.
