We had a wonderful day at the Llyn Guild of WSD on Thursday, so I thought I’d share the blog post I did for them about it. Yes, I bought stuff. Of course I did. Sari silk. Some of the green fluff, third photograph, top left. I know, I know…

The Llŷn Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers

The weather forecast for Thursday was not good – the return of winter was predicted – and we were to host a sampling day with Wingham Wools. Not only did they have to get to us from Yorkshire and return home safely, but we also knew that spinners were planning on coming from other North Wales guilds. Happily the worst of the weather was delayed, which was just as well…

We can use two rooms in the Penygroes hall, which meant that Winghams had plenty of room to spread out their goodies,

and the spinners had plenty of room to set up their wheels or twirl their spindles.

There were over 30 wheels in the end, and quite a few spindle-twirlers.

So what did we find to play with? Plenty:
