West Carleton Fibre Guild

The West Carleton Fibre Guild (WCFG) began in the mid-1980’s with a small group of weavers and spinners. The guild has since expanded to nearly 40 fibre enthusiasts from West Carleton, Kanata, Ottawa and beyond.

What we do

The guild meets once a month and has regular study groups for those looking to further improve their fibre arts skills. Monthly guild meetings usually include a presentation and/or hands-on workshop activity, as well as show-and-tell, and help with any fibre –arts issues. Guild members have many areas of expertise, including:

  • Weaving
  • Spinning
  • Knitting/crocheting
  • Bobbin lace
  • Beading/embellishment
  • Silk Fusion
  • Wet and Dry Felting
  • And much, much more!
