Ottawa Valley Weavers' and Spinners' Guild
Next Guild Meeting ~ New Location!
Monday, January 6th, 2014
404 McArthur Ave
Our monthly meetings will be held in the facilities of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa (UF) located adjacent to our Studio in Heartwood House.
So come and inspect the new Studio, sign out books from the Library (open 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM) and bring your summer work to an extended show and tell.
400 McArthur Ave is two blocks west of St Laurent. By Bus, 1) take the number 14 bus from Downtown or from the St Laurent transit station; or
2) by car, exit the Queensway at either the Vanier Parkway or at St Laurent and head north to McArthur Avenue.
Parking is on McArthur Avenue, in front of our new home (Watch for the yellow "school crossing" sign); -- behind the building; or -- on the neighbouring side streets. Please do not park in the lot in front of the retail businesses. That parking is for their customers.
Most of Heartwood House is still under construction, so you need to enter the building by the western-most front door (under the UNITARIAN FELLOWSHIP sign). This is the former front entrance to the Giant Tiger store that used to occupy the building.
Our Studio is on the front near the west end of the complex and opens into the UF lobby.
The Ottawa Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild was formed in 1949 with the aim of drawing together individuals interested in fibre art and crafts, particularly weaving and spinning. We offer our members the opportunity to learn and grow with others who share their interests. The Guild currently has a membership of more than 140 paid and honorary members. (More..)

Workshops & Courses
The OVWSG offers many courses and workshops in weaving, spinning, and dying, for very reasonable fees. Well-known instructors have provided us with invaluable knowledge and information over the years. The workshops have proven to be very popular, and many of our own members have the expertise to conduct many of the workshops offered.
The 33rd edition of the Exhibition and Sale will be at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Ave
Friday, Nov. 1 (4 pm - 8 pm)
