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

Our Beautiful Site

We are thrilled to have our conference on the lush University of Victoria campus. Learn more about some of the areas to explore on our blog. 

Did You Know?

It may be chilly now, but Victoria in July is (almost always) warm and sunny. We can expect an average high of 24C (75F) at the conference.


Our host site, the University of Victoria, does an amazing job catering to a wide range of dietary needs. Read more about it on our website.
