The Guild was formed in 1977 by a group interested in weaving, spinning and dyeing, eager to share information and ideas and to promote and encourage these crafts. We’re always happy to find new members, you don’t need to have spun or woven before!

Generally, the first Wednesday evening of the month meeting is an informal Spin, Weave & Chat evening, and on the third Wednesday we often have a talk by a guest speaker. There are exceptions to this, so please check our programme for further details – occasionally Saturday daytime meetings and workshops are scheduled in place of Wednesday evening meetings.

During these Covid times, we still have some meetings via Zoom, but are increasing our hall-based meetings, adhering to current NHS/government guidelines for safety.

Further details of workshops and speaker evenings can be found on our website: spinweavechat.wordpress.com
