With an active group approaching 100 members, the guild participates in community events and sponsors a variety of educational programs and workshops in a broad range of textile-related crafts.

      Stripes have been an integral part of textile design throughout human history. View woven samples and images from Cameron’s own collection as well as from the Cooper Hewitt in New York, the Textile Museum in Washington D.C, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Nuno, Lena Rahoult and many others. Examine design elements of color, texture, weave and proportion in stripes, and see how these concepts can be explored in quick compositions with yarns, pastels and colored paper. Discuss how these “sketches” could be translated into woven cloth.
