Thank you for stopping by the Lancaster Spinners and Weavers Guild website.  Please explore the different areas of the website, and if you have any questions, please feel free to email us.

"The purpose of the guild is to meet and exchange ideas, to help and encourage all fiber enthusiasts in an altruistic manner to achieve the highest standards of excellence; to conduct workshops for instruction of members; to stimulate public interest in and appreciation for the fiber arts."

We invite you to join us as your schedule permits, and we look forward to sharing our passion of the fiber arts with you.

UK friends: We would love to share our love of fiber arts with you, but we are located on the other side of the pond in Lancaster, Penn., USA.

There are at least three guilds in the Lancashire area in the UK, so this link to the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers should help you find someone in your part of the world. Happy fibering!

News and Notes

November meeting - Happy Thanksgiving! We won't have a meeting this month because it coincides with the holiday. We hope you can attend the Fiber Frolic on Thursday, Nov. 9.

December meeting
- We will not have a meeting in December. Instead, we will have a holiday party during our regularly scheduled Fiber Frolic on Thursday, Dec. 14.

One of the features of our holiday party is
our gift exchange. We play "Now You Have It, Now You Don't" for a fun twist. If you want to play, bring a wrapped gift valued at $10. It can be handcrafted or fiber-related or something else of interest to guild members. It's always a fun game!

Sheep to Shawl News

We have formed a sheep to shawl team for the 2018 PA Farm Show. Mark your calendar for Wednesday, Jan. 10, so you can cheer on the team, either in person or by watching on PCN - Pennsylvania's Cable Network.
The Lancaster Spinners and Weavers Guild participated in the 38th annual Sheep to Shawl Competition at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show on Jan. 11. The team placed fifth out of seven teams. Congratulations on finishing, gals (and Nathan)!
