The Atlantic Spinners and Handweavers (ASH) was established by a group of local weavers in 1970 and provides the opportunity for weavers, spinners and dyers living in the Halifax area and beyond, to meet in a social atmosphere, to exchange information, learn new techniques and methods and share their interests.

We meet on the second Saturday of the month at Scott Manor House, 15 Fort Sackville Road, Bedford 9:30 - 11:30am. In June we share food and socialize at a potluck at a members home. Our Hands On meetings and Fibre Days are also held at Scott Manor House.

      Visitors and new members are always welcome!



We have short business meetings followed by show and tell and then refreshments.


Every meeting we have a program on a topic of interest to the group including guest speakers and slide presentations.


On the 4th Saturday of the month (September - April), we have day long workshops on a variety of topics such as inkle weaving or fibre blending.

Fibre Day

On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month (Sept - April) we host a get together where members can spin, do fibre related activities and socialize.


We have a variety of weaving and spinning equipment available for rental by our members.


We have a Library of over 600 books on spinning, weaving and other fibre activities.


We often have the opportunity to demonstrate weaving and spinning at various events.


Every 3 years we have hosted an exhibition of member's work. All members are encouraged to participate.
