Calendar

Guild Meetings are held at 7PM on the 2nd Friday of odd-numbered months — September, November, January, March, May, and July — at MIT’s Stata Center, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge. Keep an eye out for the specific room (or, very rarely, a venue change).

Crafty Sundays are held at 2PM on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month in the lobby of MIT’s Tang Center (Building E51), 2 Amherst Street, Cambridge. The lobby is right inside the revolving door at the corner of Amherst and Wadsworth; if that door is locked, you may have to enter the building through the parking lot door. Come hang out and craft, get inspiration, 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.
