Newcastle Spinners and Weavers members are encouraged to join the Official Members page on Facebook to share your crafting projects.

The Guild nurtures the fibre crafts of spinning and weaving, and encourage other crafts such as felting, dyeing, knitting, crocheting where fibres can be used.

Meetings include demonstrations and hands on activities, as well as problem solving in the many facets of the use of fibres. (e.g. reading patterns)

The Guild also maintains a library of books and magazines covering information on Spinning and Weaving and other related subjects.  Equipment pieces from wheels to looms and smaller items, are also available for hire by members.

Workshops are arranged on a regular basis and have included: basket weaving, weaving, spinning silk, felting and many more. Major workshops are conducted by experienced fibre artists on a fee paying basis. These are available to members, and to non members who may also be required to pay a membership fee to participate. (See further details under “event information”)

Mini workshops/demos are often held during meetings, usually free or may involve a small fee to cover consumables supplied by the demonstrator. (See further details under “Event Information”)

Equipment for sale – check the list of second hand items for sale on the “classes” page.
