Zoom Chat Links :-)
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.

There was talk of felting...
And other interesting crafts...
Great value packs of yarn can be found on Woolyknit.
The speed and efficiency of their service is excellent.
Then we all got a bit carried away dreaming of visits to Shetland - fingers crossed that might be next year.
This site is a recent discover and so interesting. Read Kate's story and marvel at her books and her husband's photography. You can get lost in the shop too!
