Pikes Peak Weavers Guild was established in 1959 by a community of weavers at Colorado Springs, Colorado. Nestled in the shadows of Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods, PPWG members are never lacking in inspiration for color, texture, and design.
PPWG encourages our friends in the weaving, spinning and dyeing community to enjoy our online newsletter. While current issues are reserved for PPWG members, past issues are available to the public in our online reading area.
PPWG hosts an excellent weaving software program created by Bengt Nelson: WeaveDesign. Because of Mr. Nelson's generosity, it may be downloaded free of charge, using the link above. Thanks, Bengt!

The Guild usually sponsors an annual workshop featuring well-known fiber artists and educators. Additionally, members can often be found participating in regional shows, galleries and fiber demonstrations. Several of our members are also published scholars, and contribute to the online PPWG Journal.
PPWG publishes a monthly newsletter filled with interesting articles, samples and drafts. Current issues are reserved for PPWG members only. PPWG also has an outstanding library collection to which members have access.
