News

A small but enthusiastic group met in person for the first time in 20 months at the museum. We were also joined by a number of members on Zoom. There were some technical hiccups but all was resolved and we enjoyed an interesting presentation about 3 weavers important to the guild - Mary E. Black, Joan Thorne and Dorothy Hill.


Upcoming events

To advertise on our site, follow this link.

The Atlantic Spinners and Handweavers (ASH) was established by a group of local weavers in 1970 and provides the opportunity for weavers, spinners and dyers living in the Halifax area and beyond, to meet in a social atmosphere, to exchange information, learn new techniques and methods and share their interests.

We meet on the second Thursday of each month, September through May at 7:15 p.m. at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History, Summer Street, lower level entrance. In June we share food and socialize at a potluck at a members home. Our Hands On meetings and Fibre Days are held at Scott Manor House, 15 Fort Sackville Road, Bedford.                 Visitors and new members are always welcome!
