About the Guild

In the fall of 1981, ten fiber enthusiasts met to discuss the possibility of organizing a group of weavers, spinners and basket makers. They lived in and around the Morris County area of New Jersey.

Their goal was to establish a guild for the purpose of studying and exchanging ideas and knowledge about their crafts.

This was the beginning of Jockey Hollow Weavers. Since then our Guild has grown and includes novice and experienced practitioners of the fiber arts.

Jockey Hollow Weavers Guild is a non profit 501(c)3 organization.


The membership year starts in September and membership dues are $30.00


Our Guild belongs to two major fiber associations, The Handweaver's Guild of America (HGA) and the Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association (MAFA).
