Welcome to the Oakville Handweavers and Spinners Guild Blog. We started in
1952 and since then we have taken part in many local community activities. Members of our Guild demonstrate spinning or weaving at historical sites throughout Oakville; we network with Guilds in surrounding areas by means of workshops and seminars; we participate with other local Guilds in textile exhibitions and provide individual and group instruction in weaving and spinning.

Pat Hood, one of our Members took her spinning wheel and shared her skills with the Oakville community. Kids where amazed on how this traditional technique still moves us to realise about what the fibres are made of.
