Challenges January 2023

Inspired by the Tour de Fleece event in July where some of us spun every day while the Tour de France was on, we decided that January should be brightened up with something similar and we came up with the January Challenge. This is something new for the guild, it is a month-long opportunity to spin or weave and socialise with other guild members while you do it. Sue Varley will be hosting the spinning challenge, Stephanie Hoyle the weaving and Jane Kitchener, the dyeing challenge. You can choose to take part in any of the challenges or if you really want to get crafty you could join the fun in them all! Photos will be added as they are received. For more information on the challenges and to see the photos, follow the links below.

For Sale

We often have new members, learning to spin, weave or dye, who are looking for equipment, so we are happy to pass on information from individuals who have equipment or materials to sell. If you have something to sell, please use the contact email: hgwsdwebmaster(at)gmail.com (replacing the “at” with @), and please give some means for members to contact you direct. If you give an email address it will appear on the site in the format: someone(at)emailprovider to stop robots picking it up. Items will be advertised for 2 months – less if you let us know they are sold.

“Friends enjoying a spinning session.”
Whilst these informal get-togethers aren’t organised by the Guild, many do meet up for a spinning day and we can put you in touch with people in your area. See the events page for information on local spinning groups.
