Welcome to The Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild 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 nearly 80. 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 10:00am to 3:00pm.
