Talk by Katie Weston of Hilltop Cloud
From Katie’s website:
“From my home in rural mid-Wales I carefully select the best fibre I can find, add a bit of colour magic, and send it to spinners and other crafters all around the world.
I specialise in unique fibres. I carefully select wool for different purposes, sometimes add in other fibres, I then dye it in my own unique one-of-a-kind colours. I also curate blends using commercially dyed fibre. I try to create complex multi-tonal colours that end up as beautiful yarns. I test spin everything myself, and spend lots of time sourcing and trialling new ideas.
I’m passionate about wool, and it’s qualities, it really is a wonder fibre, with so much variety. Every breed has it’s use.”

CHANGE OF VENUE
After many happy years at the lovely village hall in Stanton St John the group has outgrown the building and so we have moved to larger premises for our Guild meetings.
Guild meetings are now held in Beckley village hall.
Guild workshops are held in Forest Hill village hall.
Visitors are very welcome to come to our meetings, with no charge for your first visit and then a charge of £5.00 for the next two visits; after that we request that you join the guild. Guild membership is £30 for 2019, rising to £35 in 2020.
