Friendships Forged in Fibre

Beyond its mandate to educate its members and the public about weaving and spinning, KHWS has created a community for fibre enthusiasts. Through the Guild, many members have forged lifelong friendships that often extend beyond the fibre arts. Barbara Heins, Elaine Horemans, Nancy Carr, Ruth Macleod, Christine English, and Nancy Bowman discuss the integral social role of the Guild and the important friendships they have formed. With the recent COVID-19 pandemic disrupting usual operations, the Guild has adapted to keep its community safely connected. Elaine Horemans, Laurie Allan-Ungeitis, and Jackie Sylvester describe how the Guild came together.
