The Weavers And Spinner Society of Austin
Project: Come play with fiber!
Come play with fiber! Join WSSA at the looms as we create a peace banner and weave with recycled materials. Help us create a hand-woven chair or learn about an ancient Viking braiding technique. Visit our wild and wooly spinning wheel petting zoo and learn about making yarn by hand. Fun for all ages!

Programs featuring the fiber arts are held the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7 pm. In addition, members have access to our substantial library of equipment and reference materials.
