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 held on February 1, 2020.
Biennial Auction and Pot Luck
It’s that time again, where we hold our biennial auction! Please look through your fiber stashes and bring in those items to donate that you aren’t going to get to yourself so that these items don’t just languish in a closet or bin, but can shine for someone else. When you donate, we ask that you only bring clean, usable items that are fiber related. This is one of our major fundraisers to ensure we have the ability to pull major mentors in the fiber field to some of our meetings as well as pay our regular, more mundane bills (like insurance).
Every year we do a potluck, to allow our members to bring in some of their favorite recipes to share with fellow guild members. (Note: if you aren’t an accomplished cook, it’s ok to just buy your donation. All delicious food is welcome!) I personally like it as a chance to try food outside of my norm, and sometimes it helps me choose a new dish to feed my family, too. We ask that you supply a list of ingredients with your food so that those with allergies or sensitivities can choose to partake of items safe for them—otherwise they may have to avoid everything. If you want to share your recipe, those are welcome too, whether printed for people to take that day or emailed to be included in the next newsletter.
Directions to meetings can be found here.
