Women of the Ohio Valley Weavers

The Hobby Weavers of the Ohio Valley Guild, active for over 30 years, was started in 1956 by students of Lou Tate. That same year many of The Hobby Weavers went on to become charter members of The Louisville Craftsman Guild (now called Louisville Artisan Guild) along with Mary Alice Hadley (M. A. Hadley Pottery) and former Director and teacher at the Louisville School of Art, Dan Peterson. Members Vivian Hyatt, Doris Tipton, and Rose Perot taught at Nazareth College (now Spalding University) under Lou Tate and were significant in the formation of the Lou Tate Foundation and beginnings of the Little Loomhouse after Lou Tate’s death. Gifted to the Foundation from the estate of Rose Pero, Lou Tate’s long-term friend, co-teacher and secretary to The Hobby Weavers Guild, these pieces had only been shown to their members since their creation in 1958.  The exhibition runs February 22nd – April 11th with a reception for the exhibition held in conjunction with Women’s History Month Kick-Off on Saturday, March 7th from 2 pm – 4 pm. Reception is free and open to the public with light refreshments served.
