Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild

This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

Knit-in and Spin-in in Public

Apparently knitting and spinning have become a geeky craft, or should I say a craft for geeks. Check out this article String Theory: Reflections on Knitting as a Hobby for Hacker Types This probably bodes well for a spin-in and knit-in to be held on campus.  

Listen-up locals ...

Parking will be an issue. Come early and use Lot 5C (off 5th St.) and use the short term parking meters. Here is a link to the map. The outside location is the square in the centre of buildings 300 (cafeteria), 305 (library), 310 (theatre) and 315 (physics bldg).
