The objectives of the Kingston Handloom Weavers & Spinners Guild are, to promote interest and education in weaving, spinning and related fiber arts.
Monthly meetings that feature guest speakers, demonstrations, show and tell, take place on the second Wednesday of each month, except July and August. There is a social time at 6:30 pm, followed by the general meeting at 7:00 pm. Members of the general public are very welcome to attend.
Members may take advantage of our workshops, equipment rentals, a fully equipped weaving and spinning studio, and an extensive library that includes hundreds of books, magazines and videos which cover topics such as spinning, weaving, knitting, dyeing and basketry.
The Guild welcomes all levels of interest in traditional and contemporary weaving, spinning and other textile arts and crafts.
Come see what we’re all about!
December social meeting
KHWS Monthly Meeting
Wednesday December 13, 2017
Looking for a relaxing, enjoyable evening, then join us for our December social meeting – a chance to get to know some of the many new guild members and to chat with those whose faces are more familiar.
To make a bit of a party, we would like to include a few nibbles. Please bring easy non-messy finger foods – just a little to share. (Note: please be aware that we have members with allergies and dietary restrictions (e.g., nuts, gluten, dairy, etc.), so be considerate and include a list of ingredients with your contribution.)
Programme will be hands-on activities – weave a star or snowflake or fold a small box, or make all three (supplies to bring for the crafts: “paper” scissors, ruler, pencil; paper clips).
This year, as a service project, we will be collecting for the Food Bank. Donations of non-perishable food items or of money (please make cheques out to “Partners in Mission Food Bank”) will be gratefully received.
