Welcome to the home of the Nutmeg Spinners Guild! Nutmeg Spinners Guild is Connecticut’s statewide guild for handspinners. The Guild has been an active part of Connecticut’s fiber arts scene for more than 20 years. Our membership is large and diverse, coming from throughout Connecticut and nearby states.
We meet five times a year on the first Saturday of the month in October, February, April and June. In December we meet the second Saturday. Meetings run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Our next meeting will be on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
Color and Fiber Blending Workshop
with Deb Quesette
On April 6th, our own Deb Quesette will be offering mentoring on color and fiber blending using hand cards or a drum carder. More details will be provided before the workshop.
This meeting will also include our annual pot luck lunch.
In June we will be renting a program from the Andean Textile Association: Peruvian Textiles in a Box–Program for Guilds. The Association describes the program this way:
Andean Textile Arts is pleased to announce that starting in 2018, we will be offering “Peruvian Textiles in a Box,” a self-guided guild program about the weavers, textiles, and communities around the Sacred Valley of Peru. The program includes video, speaker notes, and a selection of textiles representing the wide variety of weaving structures and designs from the various communities, from intricate warp-faced pickup techniques to tapestry and scaffold-weaving, plus knitting, dyeing, braiding, and more.
Guild President Terri Guerette will be helping spinners learn to use Andean Spindles.
