About

The Llŷn branch of the National Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers was founded in the 1980s by a group of enthusiastic smallholders.

We meet in the Memorial Hall in Penygroes, generally on the third Thursday of the month, starting at 10.00 a.m – and visitors are always welcome, as are potential new members.

You can contact us directly through the main Guild (there’s a link on the blogroll); we’ve had some problems with spam, so please use this as we had to nuke the hotmail alternative… You can also post a comment, of course!

    Congratulations on such a comprehensive site: I guess if you had had my e-mail address I may have known or been informed about the day of spinning at Caernarfon Castle, so please add me to your e-mail list now. Joyce M. Jones

    (edited to remove live email link – you never know who’s listening…. but don’t worry, you’re on the list now – editor)

      We’ll look forward to seeing you! The next meeting’s on crackers – making them, not being crackers (no comment) – but there are always people who spin / knit / do whatever they want instead.

      (And if you’re in the area, why not come along to Fron Goch? There’s always room for another one!)

    Hiya, I’m a long-time crocheter, but a very brand new spinner (just got my spindle on Saturday and spun my first “yarn” this week). I’m in Penygroes and would really like to come by to learn more and chat – but I’ve got two littles (one’s nearly 3 and the other’s just turned 1). Is it okay to bring them as long as they can be well-behaved? I doubt we’d be able to stay the whole time – even the best of 2 year olds has a quiet limit, lol! I know it’s a lot to ask – but it would be such a great opportunity!! Either way, I think I’ll try to come along on the afternoon of the 14th (when I can come by myself). Thanks so much for the consideration! Christina

      Hi there, one more question – I’m really enjoying my spindle, but thinking of trying my hand at wheel spinning. I am looking at preloved websites and revelry to see if I can get one for a reasonable amount, but most seem to be very far away, so I thought I’d ask here as well. Do you, perhaps, know of anyone nearby who is selling a wheel? I really don’t know much about them, types and all, but perhaps one that’s reliable and good for a beginner? Thank you again! 🙂

        Come along to a full Guild and have a word. I don’t know of any at this precise moment, but there are always people changing wheels / hearing on the grapevine about wheels that are available – and anyway we have a loan wheel which can be borrowed. It may be out at the moment, but it’s worth asking…

    Hi,

    One of our group has just emailed that she heard that your Wingham Wool visit may have been brought forward to tomorrow.
    Can you confirm or deny this …. If so, I’ll rush out an email to all the guild members that I can get in touch with as I know that quite a few are interested in going along and would be disappointed to miss it.

    Regards

    Chris Jordan
