Meetings & Events

Meetings run on the second sunday of the month from 10:30 until 4 but feel free to pop in and stay for as long as you want. Members £3, visitors £5.

Tea, coffee and cake are provided but bring a packed lunch. We have plenty of room for spinning wheels and looms – if you need a hand to bring them in from your car, please ask. The Guild has access to a couple of spare wheels so if you’d like to have a go at spinning please get in touch with the secretary to arrange for one to be available secretary.highpeakwsd@gmail.com
