Aurora Colony Handspinners' Guild
HomeAnnual Events

A Year in the Life of Our Guild

We have a very full year of activities, beginning with monthly guild meetings at which we have educational programs and social spins. Twice a year we offer beginning spinning classes, and four times a year we publish our guild newsletter, “The Colony Flyer.” Please check our Calendar of Events for the dates of our events. 

Our hallmark event is the Antique Spinning Wheel Showcase where guild members dress up in period costume and spin on their antique spinning wheels. The showcase is held the second full weekend in March at the The Old Aurora Colony Museum in Aurora, Oregon. In addition to the wonderful wheels, we have animals and hands-on demonstrations of crafts.

In April the guild presents a Fiber Fair on a Saturday and this event includes a beginning spinning class. We also have a tea and all day spin-in where everyone wears their favorite hat on a Thursday in April.

In July, we have our all day Picnic and Dye Day at the The Old Aurora Colony Museum in Aurora, Oregon. 

We offer fiber related classes at our October Workshops including a beginning spinning class. 

Our Holiday Party occurs in early December and you will not want to miss that fun event.
