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!

Monthly Guild Meeting

November 13, 2019 - KHWS Studio  social 6:30 - meeting begins at 7:00 p.m.

Inspiration from my Travels - Barb Heins

I will use a slide show and talk about my hiking trip to Morocco, Spain and Portugal to explain how this trip has provided me with lots of inspiration for my weaving projects.
I will include some information on the historical and current rug weaving techniques of Morocco, especially those used by the Berber people living in the High Atlas Mountains where I hiked.

December 11, 2019 - Rehearsal Hall - Tett Centre, 2nd floor - 7:00 p.m.

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.
