Guild History

The Bishop Hill Fiber Guild was started in 1982 by 4 women who decided to get together in each their homes to share the joy of fiber arts. The guild has continued to grow and now has over 70 members. Our members come from all over Illinois; we even have members in Missouri and Iowa.

Our Guild is dedicated to the fiber arts as a whole. We have members who participate in all aspects of fiber arts. We are very active in the education of the public about fiber arts and helping individuals learn new skills.

The Guild sponsors a Spin-In each year on the third Saturday in October. The event typically includes classes, vendors of all kinds, demonstrations, spinning, knitting, weaving, fellowship, and lots of fun.

We also have members who are willing and able to tune, repair, and restore spinning wheels, looms, and other fiber arts equipment. The Guild invites you to join us.
