EWG Out and About

Guild members captured the interest of shoppers with their spinning and weaving at the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market last October.  See the News page for more photos of our members demonstrating.

Demo Volunteer Opportunities

Spinners, weavers and felters are needed to demonstrate their skills at the Deep Freeze Festival, Saturday and Sunday, January 12 and 13, 2019.  The shifts are 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. and 2:45 to 6:00 p.m.

Volunteers will have all day access to volunteer food and beverages, as well as some Deep Freeze swag, and Deep Freeze volunteers to help you unload and load, keep the heaters going, as well as watching tables for food and comfort breaks.  You will also be invited to the volunteer banquet.
