Peace Arch
Weavers and Spinners Guild

Spinning Wheel

Members of the guild meet at the Archives Building located by the Surrey Museum at 17710 - 56A Avenue in Cloverdale, one block north of Hwy. 10.

Members come from White Rock, Surrey, Langley and Washington State for the monthly general meeting held on the second Wednesday of the month. (Except July and August.)

Drop-ins every Wednesday from 10 am to 2 pm.

Many diversified workshops are arranged throughout the year.

The purpose of the guild is to:

Promote, encourage and improve the art and craft of weaving and spinning.

Offer classes, demonstrations and workshops of these crafts to the community.

Provide an opportunity for members to share knowledge, skills and ideas towards achieving the highest possible standards of excellence.

Maintain current and extensive collection of literature and other material relating to weaving, spinning and dyeing available to members.

Maintain a scholarship fund to encourage members in the pursuit of fibre arts.

The Peace Arch Weavers and Spinners are fortunate in that we are located in the wonderful Surrey Museum as part of the museum's textile studio.

Our looms are available to our members from Tuesdays to Saturdays during Museum opening hours.

If members wish to use the looms in the Textile Studio, they are required to register as volunteers or docents with the museum. This opens a window to new experiences, such as showing the public around the museum, participating in special events, research or as a docent to teach children or adults textile crafts.

The guild holds a sale of member's woven, spun, felted and knitted items every fall. These items must meet the standards as set out in the guild's guidelines in the membership booklet, and will be scrutinized by the Standards Committee.
