Welcome to the website of the 
SOUTH CUMBERLAND FIBER GUILD.  
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 
just to spin, knit, crochet or work on a "project-in-progress." 
Please browse our pages to learn more about who we are and what we do. 

WE WELCOME ANYONE WHO ENJOYS WORKING WITH  FIBER TO JOIN US!

    Instead of shearing a single-coated Shetland sheep, a
       process called 'rooing" is an alternative. Watch this 
       Shetland yearling being "rooed" for the first time.
