The objectives of the Association are the preservation and improvement of the craftsmanship in hand weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of the public and the promotion of public education in such craftsmanship.

Membership of the Association is open to any Guild who can show that it subscribes to the aims of the Association and is not a commercial or profit making body.

Why not join your local guild and meet other enthusiastic members who practise these and allied crafts such as felt making and braid making.

There is a Certificate of Achievement in spinning, weaving or dyeing for those members who wish to further their skills and knowledge in these areas. Assessors are drawn from those leading in these fields.
