Seaview Weaving and Fiber Arts Guild Celebrates 70 years

April 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Tuesday, April 9th, 2024 we, the Seaview Weaving and Fiber Arts Guild, will celebrate the 70th Anniversary of our founding. Our regular monthly meeting will be held at 10am at Artworks in Edmonds. Our members will be bringing examples of their work in a variety of fiber mediums including weaving, quilting, sewing, knitting, card making, printing, and many more. The public is welcome to join in the celebration. A brief meeting will follow with special attention given to all past presidents and members who are present.

Seaview Weavers’ Guild was founded in April of 1953. Meetings were originally held in member’s homes. The membership dues were $2 a year with 25 cents paid monthly. As our guild grew larger our members met in various community buildings, including Edmonds National Bank of Commerce, Maplewood Community Clubhouse, Edmonds Baptist Church, Washington Federal Savings and Loan in Lynnwood, and Maplewood Presbyterian Church. In 2020, our guild moved to Artworks in Edmonds and held one meeting before the pandemic shut everything down. Post-pandemic we resumed our in person meetings at Artworks with much success.

Since 1957 our Guild has taken part in several community arts activities, including the Edmonds Arts Festival. We have had several gallery shows including ones at the Prima Gallery at Edmonds Community College, in Everett at the Snohomish County Arts Council Gallery, and at the Frances Anderson Center. We will have a gallery show for the month of April at Coldwell Banker Bain (108 5th Ave. S, Edmonds) and at the Frances Anderson Center for the months of July and August.

While all our first members were from Edmonds, our guild now draws its members from all around the Puget Sound. After 70 years our Guild remains dedicated to promoting fiber arts in all its forms and sharing our craft with the greater community. We invite past members or anyone interested in the fiber arts to join our celebration.
