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 usually run from about 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
June 4 Meeting
All Things Bosworth
Join us in-person for the Nutmeg Spinners Guild June 2022 meeting where we are pleased to host the Bosworths. Jonathan and Sheila Bosworth will talk to the guild about “All Things Bosworth” with plenty of time for Q&A. Jonathan has well over 40 years of woodworking experience and their spindles, charkas and journey wheels are treasured by hand spinners around the world.
They will bring some of their specialty products to the meeting for members to try out, and will also bring spindles for purchase. For more information about Bosworth spindles and the Bosworths, visit their website.
