Welcome to the Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild of NSW Inc

The next guild meeting will be held from 1.30pm in the church hall behind St Paul's, 205 Burwood Road, Burwood, Sydney on Saturday, November 29, 2014.

Helen  Halpin will be our speaker. She has been a weaver for over 30 years and has never lost the fascination with the entire process.

This will be our Christmas meeting so we have celebratory plans:

your Item for tree or table in red, green, white, silver and/or gold. There will be a peoples choice of the best item.

a donation of canned food or toiletries for St Paul's church. We have given to Exodus in the past but this year, we will contribute to "our" church. They want single use items like small tubes of toothpaste, single serve meals, small jars of jam or coffee, etc

There will be a spinning/weaving trivia quiz.

Santa will distribute woven items from our stash to those who promise to cherish them.

All this activity will need some serious, celebratory plates of Christmas-style afternoon tea food brought in to share, by members.

Mini Workshop

Come and help  make beanies for chemotherapy patients, knitted  breast prostheses or squares for Wrap With Love. If you can spin, bring a wheel or spindle and spin some nicen soft yarns for us to work with! If you have any soft cotton or soft yarn for knitting that you can spare, please bringit along! BYO needles.

Mini workshops start at 11.00am in the small hall below the Guild rooms. There may be a small materials fee. If you have any ideas for minis contact Kris Supierz, at the Guild.


If you've always wanted to try spinning or weaving, but have been putting it off, the Guild has regular classes.
