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.

Beginning April 20th all Guild meetings will be held on the third Saturday of each month (unless otherwise posted) at the Rush United Methodist Church, 6200 Rush Lima Road, Rush, NY 14543 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
