WHY JOIN SWG?
TOGETHER WE CAN GROW!
Spinning and weaving have a timeless allure. Making yarn and cloth fulfills a deep human need for engaging; it is creative work that provides our everyday lives with beautiful objects. The handcraft market is expanding, fueled by a new generation of enthusiasts eager to cultivate a passion for spinning and weaving.
At the same time, the women and men of the boomer generation—a vast group—are moving into their years of self-fulfillment with more disposable income than ever before. They are ready to come back to the crafts that they first discovered in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Spinning and Weaving Group recognizes the need for a unifying voice that speaks for all of us who make our livelihood through spinning and weaving.
Our current efforts are focused on:
- Sponsoring Spinzilla, a new consumer event held during Spinning and Weaving Week. To learn more, visit spinzilla.org
- Creating a high profile presence for the crafts of spinning and weaving at TNNA trade shows
- Working with TNNA partners to generate market specific data
- Keeping membership informed via electronic newsletters, website, and social media channels
