The Guild is well provided with looms and other equipment used for weaving. We have table looms, several 4 harness 45" floor looms, a 4 harness 60" loom, an 8 harness 45" loom, and a 120" floor loom on which we weave coverlets.
We have many spinning wheels for use, and have a drum carder, as well as other items needed in spinning.
The Guild has a well stocked library on all topics related to dyeing, spinning and weaving. For 50 years we have subscribed to various magazines and have a considerable collection.
The Guild belongs to the OHS - Ontario Handweavers and Spinners, and our members take part in the Five Counties Seminar, a conference of regional Guilds.
