We’re a small, friendly guild that has been in existance since 1978. Our ages range from late 30’s to early 80’s with many fine spinners and weavers.

Our primary focus is fiber, but our meetings have also covered such topics as waxed linen amulet bags, beadwork, willow trellises, Estonia (the homeland of a member), gourds, llamas and alpacas.

We’d like to receive information of activities in Southeastern Wisconsin & ideas for future meetings.
