Membership

The Guild is a collection of individuals with shared interests in the fiber arts. The Guild offers members the opportunity to informally learn fiber art skills from other guild members through drop-ins, activities, and guest speakers. The Guild offers formal workshops and courses through the Richmond Hill community centre programs. Guild members participate in other guilds, and on occasion, are featured guest speakers.

Membership is open to anyone with interests in spinning, weaving or related fiber arts.
New members are very welcome.
