    • Finger food potluck offering (with ingredient label)
    • Handwoven or handspun decorations for show and tell
    • A ‘textile treasure’ (old or new!) for a special show and tell
    • Secret Santa – a gift from your yarn/equipment/fabric stash that is useful and in good condition, $8 value or less. If you’d like to participate, bring your item wrapped and be ready to swap for another!

IN THE COMMUNITY

The Guild generally participates in the following events each year where we demonstrate fibre processing, spinning and weaving to the public. These are subject to confirmation.

FALL FESTIVALS
See the Guild in action on the second weekend in September at the Riverdale Farm Fall Festival, and at the Cabbagetown Festival too!

FAMILY DAY
Riverdale Farm is a great place to spend Family Day, with lots of fun activities taking place, including weaving and spinning that the whole family can enjoy.

SHEEP CELEBRATION
Riverdale Farm opens its doors with the farm’s popular spring festival where Guild members use the fleece shorn from the farm sheep to demonstrate the old skills needed to make yarn, dye it and weave it into cloth. Come and see sheep shearing, basic wool preparation, spinning and weaving in action!
