Volunteer

We need you! Our Guild thrives because of our volunteers!

Volunteering is a great way to get involved, meet new people, make friends and get to know members who share your interests.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Library

Photographer

We are always looking for creative, high quality photographs for use on the website and our social media accounts. Please send photos to: education@pghw.org (no guarantee they will be used but you will receive a reply).

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

We are currently looking for a new leader for the Spinning and Multi-Shaft SIGs. You will need to be able to organize a group and send correspondence through emails to set up meetings, etc. In addition, we are looking for co-chairs of each SIG.

Interested in teaching?

Every month our Guild has a speaker. If you are interested in sharing your knowledge, please contact: education@pghw.org and someone will get in contact with you. Many times, our speakers also give workshops to share their knowledge and experience. We are open to any fiber related topics.

Weed Warrior

Our Guild has a dye garden at Awbury Arboretum. We are always looking for people to help weed, plant, harvest and tend the garden.

Contact: dyegarden@pghw.org

Writers

If one of your passions is to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) we need you! Our blog/newsletter is always looking for interesting local news and fiber related articles. Please send your 1200 words (or less) articles to education@pghw.org for review. We reserve the right to edit and/or jury submissions. All writing will be approved by the writer and editor before printing.

Community Outreach

Do you want to get out in the community and volunteer for one of our many Guild experiences? Maybe you want to spin or weave at Elfreth’s Alley, the oldest surviving “occupied” street in the United States or demonstrate a fiber craft at on of the many local festivals and events that occur in the area.

Contact: outreach@pghw.org
