Exchange

The Glenna Harris Guild has a sister guild in Guatemala, Grupo Tejedoras Teixchel in San Pedro la Laguna, with whom they exchange information. The Guild has sponsored a membership in Weave a Real Peace (WARP) for their sister guild.

In 2014 the guild and some of its members sent 11 pairs of gently used hand carders to Guatemala to be used by the women of Mayan Hands who are creating felt articles for sale to help support their families.
