The Saskatchewan Weavers and Spinners is a provincial organization which enthusiastically promotes the fibre crafts of weaving, hand-spinning and felting throughout the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Since 1991, we have held biannual retreats/conferences with well-known North American guest speakers, provided scholarships to our members, hosted several travelling shows and produced a newsletter, Scattered Threads, at least twice a year. Our members range in experience from beginners to master weavers and spinners.

 

Regional Guilds:

 

 

As a guild, we strive to improve the skills and knowledge of weavers and spinners, provide support and advocacy on issues that affect weavers and spinners and be a common bond to share skills and knowledge and promote provincial activities.
