Zoom Chat Links :-)

Keeping Connected

We've all been enjoying the Zoom Chats over recent months - the conversations have been such an enjoyable way to keep connected during this strange new world we're all living in.

 

We've discussed all sorts of subjects - some completely random and not specifically related to weaving, spinning and dying; a lot about things we love, web sites and resources we've discovered, craft techniques, and all manner of interesting shared discoveries to explore further.


We thought it would be nice to load up the web links as a reference point for everyone in the Guild.

Sit back with a cuppa and enjoy having a look through these links.

Just one caveat:

The Kennet Valley Guild of Weavers Spinners & Dyers is not officially promoting these web sites. They are for members' reference and enjoyment only. We cannot accept any responsibility for the content on these sites.
