Who we are?

The Sheep Creek Weavers Fibre Arts Guild started as a dream of five women, in the Millarville, Turner Valley, and Black Diamond area, driven by their need to create in the fibre arts while in the midst of childrearing, work, and natural disasters.

SCW was established in the mid 1970s; a time of revival for the fibre arts. Forty years later, our guild continues to be a community of determined, creative, and supportive members dedicated to the continuance of the fibre arts.

The Sheep Creek Weavers Fibre Arts Guild would like to acknowledge the Treaty 7 territory that includes the Kaina, Siksika, and Piikani Nations as part of the Blackfoot Confederacy, the Bearspaw Nation, the Chiniki, and Wesley Nations of the Stoney Nakoda Nation, the Tsuut’ina Nation and the Métis Nation Region 3.
We recognize this land as an act of reconciliation. We acknowledge the traditional territory of those whose land we reside on.

It is not enough, anymore, to say we are welcoming to one and all.

As an Alberta-based  Fibre Arts Guild, Sheep Creek Weavers is

making a real and dedicated effort to effect systemic

change towards cultural pluralism.

We stand together and demand better of ourselves and our world.
