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!
Open Studio: The Studio is open Thursday 10-2:00 pm, for work, checking out the library or just chatting.

Along with our regular sharing of treats, we will be setting up a Fiber Sale. Vendors of weaving and spinning supplies will be selling their products and we are encouraging Guild members to go through their stash and bring items they would like to sell or trade with other members.
Here is a chance to clear out fiber you haven’t used and buy more that will inspire you to create.
