Welcome to The Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild The Finger Lakes Fiber Festival has been canceled for 2022. Promoting the art of spinning in upstate New York since 1985

The guild is a group of people interested in various aspects of handspinning. The group formed in 1985 with just a few members and has grown to a group of well over 100. Members include veteran spinners as well as those who are completely new to spinning. Guild meetings offer opportunities to meet other spinners, learn spinning techniques, and share resources. The guild educates wider audiences about spinning through public demonstrations.

Meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month at The Legacy at Erie Station, 1545 Erie Station Rd Henrietta, NY 14467 from 10:00 to 3:00.

2020 Spin-along

Beautiful fleeces from Nistock Farm have been processed by Acorn Works and each participant will get 8oz of natural colored roving to create their work of art. Anything can be made with this fiber, but nothing can be added to it–no dyes, no other fiber, no embellishments. These projects will be on display at the September 2022 guild meeting. Just imagine the possibilities!
