About Us
The Journal exists to further the aims of the Association and to provide:

    * an interesting and informative magazine for those involved in the crafts

    * an opportunity for the exchange of ideas

    * instructive articles to encourage wider experimentation

    * an effective advertising space for suppliers

The Journal is published on behalf of the Association of Guilds of Spinners Weavers and Dyers.

A small team of enthusiastic volunteers publishes the Journal quarterly in spring summer autumn and winter.

It covers a wide range of textile subjects, including articles on historic textile techniques and cutting edge modern design.

We published an extra issue in summer 2009 to celebrate the life and work of Peter Collingwood. Subscribers received the Peter Collingwood Issue as part of their subscription. It is now available as a back copy.
