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

The Mid Island Weavers and Spinners Guild invites spinners, weavers, felters, knitters, and other  fibre fanatics to join us.  We are from all walks of life, young and old (currently our youngest is about 14 and our oldest is in her 70's but we don't ask), and we all share of love of fibre.  We have monthly meetings which consist of a few business items (we try to minimize that) usually have a speaker talk on some interesting fibre related topic, tea and coffee (with great home baking) and a show and tell.  We also have a drop-in for spinners (knitters are welcome) on the third Wednesday of the month and we organize workshops and events throughout the year.  Feel free to pass this message on to people you might know of who would be interested.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, September 4th at 7 pm.  If you've got something you would like to show off, please bring it. Hope to see you there.
