The New Hampshire Spinners and Dyers Guild was formed by 30 fiber artists in 1980 to encourage the arts of spinning and dyeing. We have grown to over 150 enthusiastic members from New Hampshire, New England, and the United States.
The NH Spinners and Dyers Guild is open to all who enjoy the fiber arts. We have about 150 members from NH and the surrounding states – spinners, knitters, dyers, crocheters, weavers, felters – with a wide variety of skill levels, creative interests and ideas.
There are three regularly scheduled meetings each year – the Fashion Show in February, the Annual Meeting in April, and the Barnstead Swap in November. Meetings are a good place to connect with other local spinners who can help get a beginner started and help keep an accomplished spinner inspired.
Membership is $15 per year for individuals or $20 for a family and runs from June 1 to May 31.
Members receive The Fleece & Flyer, a bi-monthly newsletter which includes articles by members, announcements for upcoming events, workshop information, and more. Members are also entitled to sign up for workshops.
We sponsor two or three workshops each year to expand and share our skills. These include Dyeing, Natural Dyeing, Spinning with a Purpose and Knitting with Homespun. We welcome anyone interested in these arts to join us.
