Covid-19 update

Activity Days Can Start Again

With the ease of restrictions coming into effect on the 1st June, we are able to resume some spinning day activities.

The hall at New Lambton is available for use. The 4 square metre rule means we can have 24 people there. This is the maximum we usually get so should be easily satisfied.

  • We will provide hand sanitiser and ask that everyone uses it on entering or uses their own.
  • The tables and chairs will be sprayed with an antiseptic solution.
  • We will provide tea, coffee and milk as usual but please bring your own cup and morning tea.

We have not yet received a reply about the use of the hall at Bruce Street yet.

IF IT IS POSSIBLE to have the spinning day on the 20th June I will send a group email or phone  any regular attendees who do not receive those emails.

NO MESSAGE MEANS NO SPINNING

There will also be information on the website and the Facebook pages.

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)

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”)

Visitors are always welcome

Join us to learn or enjoy any of these crafts, or even to just have a “yarn”. Membership is available on a yearly basis, with membership fees becoming due on 1 January each year.
