Saturday Group

The Saturday Group is a supplemental meeting time for those who are unable to attend the weekday meet-ups. It was created for those who want to learnt to  spin, weave, or do other fiber crafts, or want to hang out on a Saturday because they are not available during weekdays. Come for the camaraderie of like-minded fiber folk.  We meet the 2nd Saturday of the month. We gather at 9 a.m. for socializing; meeting time is 10 a.m. - 12: 30 p.m. 

You are welcome to take part in the "topic du jour" or work on your own projects. Previous experience is not necessary. Come to learn and try something new. We are an informal group and the discussion topic usually does not take up the entire meeting, unless noted. 


Please note: we are in the process of finding a new meeting place, so see the schedule below for what we have planned and locations for the next few months. Feel free to email us ahead of time if you want more info.
