Texere in Latin means to weave or intertwine, referring to the binding of fibres into cloth. Texere is also an exhibition and sale of fibre artistry, hosted by the Victoria Handweavers & Spinners Guild. The Guild is excited to host its premiere weekend event, showcasing the diverse talents of our fibre community. For the first time in ten years, they display their wares as a solo group. Active members number 140 and include weavers, spinners, felters, knitters, basket weavers and rug makers. Visitors to historic Goward House can purchase hand-made items and special gifts. Displays and demonstrations continue over three days. One busy weaver will make and sell tea towels - hot off the loom! Free admission and parking is available
