About the Guild and Membership

'Here to encourage and support Longdraw spinning...'

The Guild of Longdraw Spinners was established in February 2007. It is affiliated to the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. The Guild meets on the first Saturday of each month. The July 2007 meeting took place at Woolfest when the Guild made its first public appearance. The annual meeting takes place in June. All other meetings take place in St. Giles Community Centre, Lower Street, Desborough, Northants NN14 2NP and involve speakers, skill-sharing and visits. It is hoped that all members will be able to meet at an annual Guild Reception commencing at Woolfest 2008. Membership is £10 per year. To join simply use the form mentioned below. No previous experience is necessary - but enthusiasm is essential.
