What We Offer

We offer free monthly programs after our business meetings. Several times a year, we offer classes and workshops.  There will be a fee attached to these special events, dependent upon teachers’ charges and materials used. Members receive a reduced fee on the registrations for the workshops and some classes.

We offer several members only study groups during the year.  Currently we have multi-shaft, double heddle with a rigid heddle, creating a garment and spinning groups scheduled. You can check our Calendar of Upcoming Events for more details.
