We are located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada, a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, just outside of Vancouver.

We are an enclave of artists of all varieties (for a comprehensive list of Sunshine Coast artists, see Coast Cultural Alliance).

The SCSAWG meets on the first Monday of every month, at
St. John’s United Church
5085 Davis Bay Road
Davis Bay (just south of Sechelt)

Doors open at 11:30, with the library open until 12:25.
We have a different program each month. Meetings end at around 3:00; bring your lunch (and something to knit, if you need to keep your hands busy!).

For meeting dates of our next meeting and spin-ins check Ongoing Events.

We have spin-ins in private homes on the third Tuesday of each month, from 10 am-2 pm.
Bring your own lunch and your spinning wheel, spindle, knitting
needles, or whatever you’re working on at the moment.

The Northern Spin-in happens on the last Thursday of the month at Yvonne’s beautiful yurt studio, FibreWorks (12887-12889 Sunshine Coast Highway, 2 km north of Madeira Park).
Potluck lunch; Yvonne provides tea and coffee
(suggested donation: $3).
Call 604-883-2380 for more information.

We’re very pleased and excited to announce the creation of our own Fibreshed:
Local Fibre, Local Dyes, Local Artisans
Visit our blog here.

We maintain a large library of books about everything fibre, and a
variety of equipment for loan.
For the list of our holdings please see the LENDING LIBRARY tab above.

Mark your calendars now, we are doing it again: Sept. 9-11, 2016. Same great location, same wonderful fibre fun. Sponsored by our guild to nurture our interests so there will be lots of spinning, weaving, dyeing, felting, knitting etc. Tell your friends, we hope you can join us! Please see the FIBRE CAMP tab above for more info.

We have an annual sale of our members’ own creations, to raise money for the Guild, scheduled this year for November 25-26, 2016.  This event is held at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt at 5714 Medusa Street (sometimes known as the art gallery, near the Seniors Centre).
You can see some images of our 2014 sale here.

The Guild is excited to be taking on a special project: organizing the 17th International Fungi & Fibre Symposium to be held October 17-22, 2016, based in Madeira Park. Please see the tab above for the link to the Symposium’s website.
