History of the Tulsa Handweavers Guild:

The first account of a handweavers “club” was in a newspaper report written in 1941.
Little was documented of this early club and it was not until 1953 that a notice appeared
announcing that a meeting was to be held at the YWCA with the purpose of formally
organizing a “Handweavers’ Guild” in Tulsa.

Twenty-five women were present at this meeting held on May 1, 1953.
On June 5, 1953, the “Eastern Oklahoma Weavers Guild” became a formal organization
and Mrs. N.J. Gubser was chosen as chairperson of the Guild. 
The Guild is fortunate to have a rich weaving history and exciting future.
Many of our members are published authors, recognized teachers,
and highly respected members of the weaving community.
