The Nottawasaga Handweavers and Spinners Guild, founded in 2003, provides a venue for members to practice the art and craft of spinning and weaving in a supportive fibre arts community. Meetings are held on the third Saturday of most months and feature guest speakers, demonstrations, presentations by guild members, or mini-workshops. Members meet to work on projects on most Monday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. and on Thursdays from 10 a.m. until noon, frequently followed by a light lunch in the Gibson Centre Café.
The group is involved in community outreach activities and provides demonstrations at Alliston’s Canada Day festivities and the Alliston Potato Festival. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call (705) 435-6991, or visit our website www.nottguild.ca.
Each November, the Guild hosts Seasonal Wrapsody, a show and sale of unique, hand-made items ranging from fibre arts to food, featuring a wide variety of local vendors. The sale takes place at the Gibson Centre in Alliston.
