St. Augustine Textile Arts Guild Keeps Traditions and Skills Alive


Textile arts have been part of St. Augustine’s culture since the city was founded. The Textile Arts Guild was formed in 1995 to perpetuate the textile arts of the past for the future.

The members of the group are interested in all kinds of fiber arts, both colonial and contemporary. Among their skillsets and talents are weaving, spinning, lace and paper making, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, felting, needle punching, basketry and more.

Weekly studios, monthly meetings and special demonstration events throughout the year keep members engaged.

The Textile Guild meets monthly on the second Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Suite 143 of the Lightner/City Hall arcade. Learn more by visiting the St Augustine Textile Arts Guild on Facebook.

Watch the St. Augustine Textile Arts Guild in action as they provide live demonstrations in periodic gear during Made in St. Augustine. Products handmade by members will also be available for purchase.
