We currently meet on the first and third Thursday of the month, with various workshops being offered on the third Thursday of each month.
It is interesting to know that our committee members generously volunteer their time and hard work to ensure the successful running of the guild. All members are encouraged to contribute their knowledge and skills to assist and support the next generation of hand spinners and weavers. We appreciate the efforts of all those that continue to contribute what they can to spread the workload.
Join us for some night spinning on the second Tuesday of the month: 7-9:30pm. It may be a good idea to contact us in advance to confirm it’s still on.
Details of our upcoming workshops are available on guild days and via our member newsletter. Non-members are welcome to register to attend a workshop. Contact us if you would like to receive regular updates regarding our workshops on offer.
Also, it is worth noting that our guild does not meet on days when the fire rating is:
CATASTROPHIC, total fire ban. Please contact a committee member if in doubt.
A little bit of our history…
The Adelaide Hills Spinners & Weavers Guild was formed back around 1972 after a meeting was organised by the first President. Members would meet each month in the Mylor Hall for about a year before moving to an old cottage: Burnbank located in Mount Barker Springs. They later moved to a room in what was once the Morning State Hotel at Wistow, then to the old Grandstand at the Mount Barker Oval. It wasn’t until 1989 that the members starting meeting at the Littlehampton Hall.
