The Southern California Handweavers' Guild (SCHG) is an Amazon Associate.


For every purchase you make through an Amazon link on this site, a small percentage of the price goes to support our programs, including our library of rental looms and more than 3,000 books, DVDs, and magazines.

We get a commission on whatever you put in your cart during a trip that starts with one of our links, so if you add another book, a pair of shoes, or some household items to one of our fiber arts recommendations that also helps support the Guild. Or bookmark this page and start all your shopping by clicking the ad above.

The price you pay doesn't increase, and the author gets the same royalty. Nothing changes except that we get a small share of the revenue.

If you have the Guild or other charity designated to receive an Amazon Smile donation, before you checkout, simply add "smile" to the beginning of your cart's URL.. For example: https://smile.amzn.to/2Fw3I2U.

Here are some of our members' favorite books on weaving and fiber arts:




The Crackle Weave by Mary E. Snyder (Shelly Thompson)

Step by Step weaving by Nell Znamierowski (Karen Leckart)

Vanishing Fleece: Adventures in American Wool by Clara Parkes (Charmaine Soo)
"Entertaining read about how yarn is produced in America and the many steps that small boutique yarn producers, specialty sheep farms, wool processing/production companies must take to provide USA-sourced product."
