Norfolk & Suffolk guild

We are a friendly group that includes weavers, spinners and dyers within our membership. We meet monthly and our programme includes talks, workshops and social events. We are currently meeting in person at Broome Village Hall on the third Thursday of every month from 1pm, but look out for our occasional Open Saturdays, where anyone is welcome to come to see what we do.
