Guild Meetings are held at 7PM on the 2nd Friday of odd-numbered months (that is, September, November, January, March, May, and July). They usually meet in MIT’s Stata Center, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge, but keep an eye out for the specific room or any venue changes.

Crafty Sundays are held at 2PM on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month in the lobby of MIT’s Tang Center, entrance at 2 Amherst Street, Cambridge. The lobby is close to the revolving door at the corner of Amherst and Wadsworth. Come hang out and craft, or take advantage of “drop-in crafty office hours”: Get help if you’re stuck with a project, learn to spin, troubleshoot sewing machine problems, etc.
