NEW! Kent Guild of Spinners Dyers and Weavers Online Library

Videos, documents and more

With the current situation making access to our physical library impossible, we are endeavouring to assemble a list of links to useful documents and videos on a variety of 'fibrey' topics. April saw the beginning of this, with some introductory videos on Nålebinding (various spellings!).
