12th Annual Gathering
The Gathering of Guilds began in 2003 to provide an opportunity for the public to connect with local fiber and needlework-related guilds in the Central Pennsylvania Region. Because many guilds meet in churches and libraries, it may be difficult for interested persons to find a local guild.
The Keystone Lace Guild has been the host for this annual one-day event on the last Saturday in February from 9 am - 4 pm at the Swatara Church of God, 4860 Lindle Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111.
Admission: A canned food item for the Central PA Food Bank. Cash donations also accepted.
Food: The church sells homemade soups, sandwiches and baked goods. We encourage you to support their sale because they provide the facility, parking, and volunteers at no charge to us.
Schoolhouses & Blackboards: Guilds will offer hour-long projects for a small materials fee, as well as demonstrations & informational presentations throughout the day.
Limited Handicap Accessibility: Activities are held on both levels of the building. The guild displays, Blackboards, and food are on the main level; Schoolhouses are held on the lower level. There is a chair lift to the lower level, and an outside entrance to the lower level. Restrooms on both levels.
Parking: If you are planning to spend most of the day at the Gathering, we encourage you to park across the street at the WITF Public Media Center. The church provides a shuttle van to take you to the church and back. Thank you!
