When you join Complex Weavers, you join a group of weavers dedicated to expanding the boundaries of their handweaving, and that encourages members to develop their own creative style, inspiring others through research, documentation, and innovative ideas. We challenge our skills and imagination by sharing information and innovations with our fellow weavers - both directly and through our study groups, Seminars, and Journal.
Joining Complex Weavers also gives you access to a group of members that shares your values: people who find weaving exciting, challenging, and complex, and who want to develop their weaving skills. We foster education in weaving - helping our members develop a deeper understanding of weave structures, fabric design, historical techniques, and methods/tools for creating woven fabric. You can read more about our incredibly diverse interests here. We also help members connect with other members around the world who share their interests and love of weaving - fostering stimulating discussion, sharing of techniques, and mutual exploration (not to mention support in times of frustration!).
To join Complex Weavers, just fill out one of our two membership forms - an online registration via Paypal or a paper registration form for checks and credit cards - and send in your dues. And it is not expensive - within the USA the dues are $35 per year. In Canada or Mexico the dues are $40 per year (to help cover increased mailing costs for the Journal). Outside North America the dues are $45 per year. (Payment must be by PayPal, by credit card, or in US funds drawn on a US bank.)
Guilds are also welcome to join Complex Weavers! Guilds will receive the Membership Directory, the Journal, and the Newsletter, but only individual members have library access privileges.
