2009 Diary

The aim of the Guild is ‘to encourage and support long draw spinning’ and our Inspiration Days are an opportunity to seek advice and share experiences. The format for the day would typically include a short business meeting; an advice clinic; a workshop on a pre-agreed subject; a talking table to show off and explain your latest project; a shared lunch and a spin-in.
Unless otherwise stated, all meetings will be held in Stoke Albany Village Hall and there will be a charge of £5 to cover hall rental. Please also bring a plate for a shared lunch.
