The guild library has a wide assortment of books, DVDs and magazines on many fiber-related topics. In addition, we have a drum carder and 2 inkle looms. Members may borrow items by requesting that they be brought to the next in-person meeting or by arranging a rendezvous with the librarian. Items may be checked out for one month at a time and may be renewed for additional time if the item has not been requested by another member. Materials are due back at the following in-person meeting.
We have SpinOff and Handwoven magazines in digital format from 2000 through 2021. We also have indexes for both magazines that span more years than we have issues, but are still helpful for researching topics. Take a look at the indexes below to help with your search for specific issues. We also have a complete hardcopy set of PLY Magazine and some issues of The Spinning Wheel Sleuth.
