A Bit of Background
The Kent Guild of Spinners Dyers and Weavers is a friendly bunch of creators of all things fibre. Spinners, weavers and dyers of all ages and abilities, together with knitters, crochet-makers, felters, and much more.
We meet on the last Saturday of every month save December, from 10:30 till 3.
See our programme for more information.

Kent Guild of Spinners Dyers and Weavers is a very busy group of creators who are there for each other, and for anyone interested in creative fibre crafts. Although we focus on the traditional spinning, weaving and dyeing, we've had talks, demos and courses which included making clay buttons, needlefelting, and information on the Bayeux Tapestry. We've had representatives from suppliers, and lots of shows of our own creations - wearable, hangable and otherwise.
Show and Tell
Regrettably the Open Day planned for July has been cancelled
"In the tapestry of life, we're all connected. Each one of us is a gift to those around us helping each other be who we are, weaving a perfect picture together."
