Come see us at the LEX - September 20-24, 2017

Hi everyone! Our Guild has had an exciting year so far with many positive changes, new members and lots of new community events that we have been participating in.

Come see us as part of the Olde Gaol Museum exhibit at the Lindsay Exhibition from September 20-24, 2017. Members may be knitting, spinning, weaving or doing other fibre crafts. Don't hesitate to stop by and chat.
We welcome you to join a warm, enthusiastic group of people with a mission to:
  • encourage, expand and preserve excellence of craftsmanship in hand spinning, weaving and all textile arts
  • foster a sense of beauty and colour in yarn design
  • provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information
We are a group who meet to investigate and learn new techniques and enhance our skills in weaving, spinning, dyeing, knitting, crochet, rug hooking and other hand work.

Programs related to spinning, weaving and other fibre arts are held at each meeting. Sometimes videos, hands-on workshops, guest speakers or our own members with expertise in specific areas facilitate our monthly programs. We try to feature some aspect of one of our crafts every month.

Our members come from all walks of life, of all ages, and all levels of interest and skill in textile arts.

Regardless of the level of ability our members are interested in the crafts of spinning and weaving and all other fibre arts, and willingly share our knowledge and ideas.

The inspirational "Show and Tell" shares our successes, reviews our problems, and comes up with solutions.

Social breaks provide the opportunity to catch up on events, share ideas and trade advice.

We also participate as a group in local community events such as:
  • house tours
  • Settlers Village
  • local fairs
  • school visits
 through demonstrations and displays.
