The Guild was first established just after World War II by a small group of people who wanted to get together to knit, spin and socialise.
The Guild is situated in Alexander Craft House and is a non-commercial organisation aiming to bring together people who practice the arts of handweaving, spinning, dyeing and textile arts and to advance these arts by discussion and exhibition of work.
From February to November, Alexander Park Craft House is open for Guild activities on the following days:
