East Grinstead Spinners guild

East Grinstead Spinners is a small, enthusiastic group of around 30 members. We meet twice a month and enjoy sharing ideas, learning new skills, and spinning, weaving or dyeing among friends.

Meetings start at 2pm. There may be an optional workshop organised by one of our members.  As they are popular, only members may take part. However, they are optional and some members attending our meetings will be ‘doing their own thing’. So visitors are sure of a warm welcome at any meeting – no matter how experienced or inexperienced a spinner you are.  We have experts in many fibre crafts who are happy to offer help and guidance if you wish.

At our meetings we also enjoy a cuppa and a biscuit, chat a lot  and enjoy being together sharing our fibre related interests.
