Due to the Coronavirus, the Club will be closed until further notice.

Our Camp has also been postponed from 5,6 & 7 June 20. A decision on holding the camp will be made once restrictions have eased.

Keep your eyes on this page, and we will let you know when we can return to meetings at our Club Rooms.

Take care of yourselves, and we will see you on the other side.

The Toowoomba Spinners, Weavers & Dyers Group was formed by a small number of women in 1977. A few people who had similar interests and wanted to meet on a regular basis started the club. A notice was placed in the local paper and the club started. Emma McLellan was the founder with a few other women. Lucy Frost and Joyce Baker (Foundation members) are still current members.

Membership in 2017 stands at around 60 and includes men and women from all age groups.

While spinning was the initial interest the organisation now also includes all fibre crafts, including weaving, felting, dyeing and much more.
