Our team lives and breathes creativity associated with fibres, yarns, and woven textiles. With a holistic view of textile-based arts, we aim to encourage all aspects of textile culture. Our interests include supporting and promoting fibre production, spinning, weaving, dyeing, embroidery, printed textiles, quilting, fashion and more. We are proud to be representing Wales from the Caernarfon area, and thankful for the opportunities to be surrounded with such amazing people who have supported the development of this organisation.
