The Eastside Handweavers Guild was started on the east side of Detroit by a group of weavers who met in the evenings at a local yarn shop in Grosse Pointe Woods around
September of 1975. The guild still has one member from that time.
The group started meeting in members' homes after the knit shop closed. Since then the group has met in several different spaces and is currently meeting at the St. Clair Shores Adult Education facility at 23055 Masonic, Saint Clair Shores on the Third Monday of the month.
