‘Winterwork,’ The Guild open house

Nov 28, 2012

Hope — Hope Spinnery on Route 105 will again host its annual “Winterwork” sale Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The focus of Hope Spinnery has shifted this year to a stronger emphasis on the artistry of fiber. The upstairs studio is now available for weekly/monthly classes and events (schedule will be available during “Winterwork”); downstairs, The Guild — a Midcoast community clay studio, formerly of the Lincoln Street Center — has moved in, with open studio and workshops for all ages available in the coming months.

“Winterwork” features many high-quality vendors selling locally-produced goods from the Midcoast and beyond. Hand-stitched cards, felted toys and housewares, recycled bags and accessories, ornaments, children’s wares, Blue Chocolatiers chocolates, handmade soaps, knitwear and more.

A portion of the profits will be donated to Sweet Tree Arts and The Guild, both exciting new additions to the thriving Hope community. Children's art activities, tree decorating and yummy drinks will be offered. All are welcome, and admission is free. For more information, call 763-4600 or send email to info@hopespinnery.com.

Hope Spinnery is a wind-powered fiber arts studio providing custom dyeing services and exquisite yarns, as well as custom knitwear and classes in the fiber arts.
