About Our Founding Members and A Few Images of Their First Show and Sale
Designing Weavers began in the early 1970s with a small group of women coming together to share their knowledge of weaving. Among the founding members were Marie Walling, Dottie Wier and Estelle Carlson. As word traveled of this exciting group its membership grew until it reached 35 members. The people involved were powerful artists and quite a few became well known in the fiber world.

The group continues to be a strong force in the art and design community and contains several nationally known fiber teachers, artists and designers.

Fiber artists use more than thread and yarn to create. Paper, monofilament, mixed media, sculpture and many more materials and techniques are used.
