Welcoming new members from the Olympic Peninsula since the 1970’s

The North Olympic Shuttle and Spindle Guild share learning and fellowship of the Fiber Arts through “show-and-tell” at monthly meetings, study groups, workshops, programs, field trips and educational demonstrations and exhibits in the community.

The group meets monthly, the current contact people can provide you with the time and place for the next meeting place and activity. Meetings provide an opportunity for sharing and showing members’ accomplishments as well as programs by members or outside experts.

We also have monthly spin-ins, do field trips and have study groups on a variety of topics, including weaving, complex weaving, natural dyes and small looms. These are chosen by the group based on current interest and change over time.

We have a program committee that organizes the monthly programs and workshops done by fiber arts experts. Past workshops have included painted silk scarves, weaving of Scotland in song and story, overshot weaves, silk spinning, cotton spinning and more. Workshops and fashion shows are done in conjunction with the local knitting group, other local chapters of the Handweavers Guild of America (HGA), and local Northwest Regional Spinner’s Association (NWRSA) groups. NOSSG is a member of the Association of Northwest Weavers guilds (ANWG and HGA).

HGA sponsors Convergence, a bi-annual conference of weaving and spinning. We also keep in touch with nearby guilds, sharing newsletters and workshops. Members include fiber artists, sheep, llama and other fiber animal owners, beginners to advanced and the curious at heart. There is a strong spirit of mentoring, camaraderie and support within the guild.
