Welcome to the Guild of Long Draw Spinners for busy people who want to spin beautiful yarn.
Our purpose is to encourage and support the skill of long draw spinning and associated activities. No previous experience necessary - but enthusiasm is essential!
We are a non-profit making organisation, willing to teach long draw spinning to anyone who is able to attend our regular monthly meetings which are held in Leicestershire. We also attend “woolly” gatherings around the country to share our skills.
COMING UP - 2014
Our December meeting will be our Christmas Sparkle Inspiration/Skills Sharing Day together with our annual Christmas Lunch, so do come prepared with expanding waistbands!
Our programme for the first quarter of 2015 will be as follows:
January – Inspiration/Skill Share Day
We are having a presence at the Waltham Abbey Wool Show on 18th January 2015, Marriott Hotel: volunteers are needed please!
February - Pillow Lace with wool
March - Weaving Workshop with Sally Watts
April – Long Draw refresher
Please note that as the 1st Saturday coincides with Easter weekend we will have our meeting on 11th April not the 4th
