Established in 1948, The Algoma Weavers' Guild (AWG) is the longest continually running weaving guild in the province. From its inception, the AWG has promoted weaver education regularly holding workshops for both beginner, youth, seniors, and experienced weavers. AWG often invites participation from neighbouring guilds in Michigan, U.S.A. and Elliot Lake, ON. The Algoma Weavers' Guild has been operating out of the Sault Ste. Marie Museum for the past 5 years, allowing for the Guild to continue to engage with the public, host meetings, skill sharing, workshops, and provide community programming. Being present in the Sault Ste. Marie Museum has also allowed for a continued engagement with the history and culture enhanced by the vast collection, archives, and research holdings within the Museum.
