The Davis Spinners Guild is a friendly, growing group of fiber and craft enthusiasts. We welcome members of all ages and skill levels. The guild typically meets at a member's house on Sunday afternoons: we bring our projects, equipment, mystery fiber for identification, and sometimes baked goods or excess produce from our gardens.

Our members can often be found spinning at the Farmer's Market, at the Square Tomatoes Craft Fair, on the Co-Op patio, or hanging out at the Davis Food Co-op Knitting and Craft Circle. If you see us, come say hello!
