SUNSHINE COAST SPINNERS & WEAVERS GUILD
Our guild began with a focus on the arts of spinning and weaving. Over the years member’s interests expanded to include many more of the fibre arts – knitting, dying and felting being some. If it is fibre-related, there is probably a guild member exploring and creating in that realm. Join us!
Our meetings offer time for socializing, library access, a guest speaker or program, a business meeting and Show and Tell, when members share their latest fibre arts creation or learning. Bring your lunch.

Members may borrow from our selection of looms, spinning wheels, carders, combs, spindles , etc. A full equpment list is available on our website.
