Our Guild is open to spinners, weavers, knitters, crocheters, felters, rug hookers,  shepherds, plant fiber growers and others interested in the art and craft of fiber and textiles. 
We meet monthly for workshops, field trips, demonstrations for the public, or to gather

      process called 'rooing" is an alternative. Watch this
      Shetland yearling being "rooed" for the first time.
