The membership and Board of the Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild (CHG) welcomes new members! The Guild serves textile artists from Atlanta and surrounding areas whose interests range from handweaving to feltmaking, handspinning, dyeing, beading, basketmaking, and beyond. CHG reflects the interests and concerns of the Atlanta area fine arts and crafts communities and represents and celebrates the common ground of endeavor for professional weavers, hobbyists, teachers, students and collectors of textiles. Guild members are inspired to reach for excellence, and Atlanta's cultural community is strengthened by CHG's vigorous and committed arts organization.
