South Hills Textile Arts Guild

The South Hills Textile Arts Guild was formed in 1981 by Pam Sosa Weinstein and a small group of women from the South Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Guild is an educational, non-profit organization designed to foster, promote and develop through an active program of education through sharing, high standards in the practice of all the textile arts, with emphasis on those using a threaded needle.

Membership is open to all who have an interest in the textile arts. Every skill level is welcome; all are encouraged to learn, to share their expertise, and to bring their enthusiasm and fresh ideas to give the Guild a broad range and vitality as a group and in the community.

Our regular monthly meetings are held in the South Hills at 10:00 AM on the fourth Tuesday of every month except November.
