Greater Vancouver Weavers' and Spinners' Guild
Eight enterprising women initiated the Greater Vancouver Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild in 1935. Today we have one hundred and fifty members. Interesting monthly programs, workshops and special interest study groups are arranged to appeal to beginners as well as more advanced weavers and spinners. The guild sponsors lectures, shows, demonstrations and exhibitions to promote and support weaving and spinning in the greater Vancouver area including Vancouver, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, Burnaby, Delta, Richmond, Surrey, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, and other suburbs.
The Purposes of the Greater Vancouver Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild are as follows:
- To promote, encourage and improve the art and craft of weaving and spinning.
- To provide an opportunity for the sharing of knowledge, skill and ideas among the guild members.
- To emphasize the importance of achieving and maintaining the highest possible standards of excellence in all work.
- To collect current literature and other materials relating to the art and craft of weaving, spinning and dyeing and to make these available to all members of the guild.
