Handweavers & Spinners Guild of Victoria

  Site Update: 10 September

The Guild aims to bring together those who practise, or wish to practise, handweaving, spinning and allied crafts. It seeks to help and encourage them to increase their knowledge, understanding and skills in these crafts through discussion, demonstration, exhibition, teaching and the provision of resource materials.

Please browse through our website which contains lots of interesting information about these crafts. If we can assist in any way, or if you would like to join some of our activities, give us a call or email us. All our details are available on the Contacts page together with an application for membership.

Celebrating our 60th anniversary

Australian Sheep and Wool Show

Congratulations to the Guild's many entrants and award winners at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show.

Sue Tannett took out the Margaret Benning Award for the best garment knitted or crocheted in yarn, handspun from fleece using a variety of colours. Carmel Hanna won a 3rd prize for her shawl.


This year was a wonderful show, the weather was very kind and all the exhibitors produced an exceptionally high standard of work which has produced so many compliments.

Well done to all!
