The next Association National Exhibition will be at Killerton House, a National Trust property in Devon. It will run from 8th to 18th September 2016.

As well as a wonderful exhibition of weaving, spinning and dyeing by the members of the Association, there will be workshops and (we hope) tours of the local woollen mill where fleece is processed into fibre and yarns.

The Killerton House has an amazing collection of historical costume, and their 2016 costume exhibition, running at the same time, will be on the theme 'Fashion to Dye For'.

Guild members wishing to know more about entering work for the exhibition should ask their Guild secretary for the information booklet or they can download the information from the Association Web Information Point.
