Northeast Handspinners Association
The Northeast Handspinners Association has its biennial weekend retreat coming up in November. Information on The Gathering is online. (Is it me, or does that sound like a Stephen King novel?)
They also provide a comprehensive list of spinning guilds in New England.
I love the whole “guild” concept, I guess it’s the medievalist in me (my specialty is women’s roles in the christianization of the Northern Germanic tribes ca. 1000 CE). Searching online, I inadvertently discovered that the Society for Creative Anachronism has its own spinning guild, An Tir. Cool.
