Village spinners closing

Village Spinners is closing


John & Marsha will be closing their retail store and transitioning into retirement in the coming months. They are
currently anticipating keeping a very pared-down website after the transition. Theywill be reducing inventory with discounts ranging from 25% to 70% (Ashford and Lendrum spinning wheels are not included in this sale). There is too much to change on the website so the sale is limited to walk-in and phone orders (shipping and insurance will be added to phone orders). All sales arefinal.

They ask that you use up any credits or gift certificates as soon as possible.

Sheep to Shawl

Sheep to Shawl

We will be having our yearly Sheep to Shawl event the first weekend of October. The venue is Dinosaur Park in Shell Beach. come visit our booth on Sunday, October 2, 2016, 11am to 4pm.

This is not a competitive event, we arrive in the morning with a loom already warped, and we spin the weft and weave the shawl during the day. We also have some weaving-related activities for children, and we raffle off the shawl we made last year. Were you thinking of joining the guild? Come meet us!
