Members of the Handspinners and Weavers Guild of South Australia
have been spinning, weaving and crafting
since 1963.

We help maintain skills and techniques that have been passed down for generations and
encourage the development of new techniques 
and ideas that make our crafts more relevant to modern lifestyles.

Our crafts know no national boundary and are as ancient as human history.

The threads of spinning and weaving bind us to our ancestors,
but our crafts are as modern as today and continue to develop and change.

Our aim is to promote the growth of spinning, weaving, and associated crafts, which are a part of the heritage of the world.

We welcome visitors:

  • when the Little Glory Gallery is open (on

     Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am to 3pm

    ). The Gallery is closed if the temperature is forecast to be over 35 degrees C - because it is not air conditioned. To find out if the Gallery is open, either check the predicted temperature on the Bureau of Meteorology's website before visiting or call the Guild (8352 48 43) once the Gallery should be open. 

Also please be aware that occasionally last minute changes are made to all advertised activities - to take account of extreme temperatures, for example.
