The Guild
We meet on the second Saturday of each month from 10.00 to 15.00 at St. Theresa's Church Hall, Glasgow St. Dumfries DG2 9DE. Members arrive at 10am and have a tea/coffee while meeting and greeting and chatting. The business meeting begins at 10.30. Workshops begin at 11.00 until 12.30 when we have lunch. Workshops continue from 1.00 until 3.00. Those not participating in workshops bring their spinning, weaving, knitting etc. to work at whilst catching up with news/events

Refreshments
Tea, Coffee, Biscuits etc. are available at Guild meetings (donation towards cost £1). Members bring a packed lunch to the meetings except at our October Gathering and December meeting when food to share is brought instead..
