The Burr House Spinners and Weavers Guild invites anyone with an interest in such fibre arts
spinning, weaving, knitting, quilting, dyeing, felting, basketry and tapestry.


The Guild was started over 35 years ago by a group of fiber enthusiasts through demonstration and teaching of hand crafts in the Richmond Hill community. Today the Guild's aim is to encourage and inspire members to improve and broaden their skills and share knowledge among the guild members. 

To promote and heighten interest in the fibre arts, we offer a variety of workshops and classes throughout the year.  Our members enjoy the use of all the extensive Guild equipment, Toilibrary services, study groups and monthly meetings with guest speakers.


Visitors and new members are always welcome!
