You don’t have to be a weaver, spinner or dyer to join our guild. Several members only knit or crochet but are inspired by the workshops which are very varied and can add new skills. See our programme
Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. The fee is £5 for the day including tea or coffee. Membership is £22 pa. and members pay £2 admission at meetings. Email below for a membership form or more information or, phone 01473 680665.
Our guild was affiliated to the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers in 1981. Several founder members are still with us and currently we have over 80 members.
Our member Angela (below) with her loom, won the bursary this year and showed us items she had produced at the workshop she attended in Diss. Some interesting techniques too. Photos of her work are on the Guild News page.
