Programs and Education

Check out our 2021-2022 plans!

Rachel Smith and Kim McKenna have taken on the planning for 2021/22 Programs and Workshops and wanted to let you know what is in store over the next little while.

September 21st : In-person Meeting

We will be meeting in person at Sharon United Church. After the Guild Meeting we will have a Show and Tell session and share with other members the projects we are working on or have finished. We will also use this first meeting for a bit of a social so we can catch up with friends we probably have not seen for quite a while.

Shari will also have tags ready for you to pick up for items you plan to put into the Sale.

October 19th : Zoom Meeting

Our guest speaker is Ariane Mather, the B.C. Rep for the Canadian Weavers Guild (CWG). Ariane will speak to us about CWG’s: Master Weaver’s Program, Weaving Exchange, Scholarship Program, and Library. She will also be sharing a bit about her own weaving interests.

November 16th: In-person Meeting

Ever wonder what the difference between drop spindles, supported spindles, Russian spindles, Turkish spindles, Tibetan spindles, etc. were? And why you would choose one over the other? This evening is all about spindles. Diana Twiss is bringing along her spindle collection so we can see first hand the differences between the various spindles styles. Diana will be explaining how the different styles are worked, the advantages of one style versus the other and what to look for when choosing a spindle for yourself.


Three workshops are lined up for 2022. Shari Bronson will be teaching a workshop on making your own personalized fibre journal in March. Diana Twiss will be teaching a spindling workshop on May 7. And Barbara Mitchell will be teaching a 2-day lace weaving workshop in September. Details regarding workshop fees, dates, etc. will be finalized shortly. Look for descriptions and details in our October newsletter.
