About the Guild

The Edinburgh Guild holds monthly Saturday meetings (usually the third Saturday) at Craiglockhart Church, Craiglockhart Drive North, Edinburgh.

Our aims are to further the crafts of weaving, spinning and dyeing, to learn from each other as well as from experienced craft tutors, and to create opportunities to display and pass on our skills. We are members of the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers (www.wsd.org.uk).

Membership£25
Juniors£12
Visitors, day£5

Our members enjoy a sociable day spent with like-minded, creative people and like finding out about new and different textile and related crafts: knitting, crochet, felting, embroidery, basketmaking, papercrafts and colour design to name but a few, as well as our main three: weaving, spinning and dyeing.

Edinburgh Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers is a registered Scottish charity, no: SC005692.

Come for a day or any part of the day; our business announcements are usually around noon if you want to keep up to date with current events. We provide teas and coffees; you just need your own lunch and contributions of home baking are also most welcome!

Bring your spinning wheel and/or current projects or just come and see what we do and join in.

Members can borrow from our extensive library of craft books and can hire weaving and spinning equipment.

The Guild has a group on Ravelry the online community: for details see the Links page.
