The Spinning Study Group of Long Island

is a non-profit organization of women and men who share an interest in the fiber arts.  Our members spin a variety of fibers including wool, mohair, alpaca, silk, cotton, ramie, angora, camel, cashmere, flax and dog hair.  We knit, crochet, felt and weave with our handspun yarn.  Whenever possible, our members volunteer to demonstrate spinning at local events and educational outreach programs.

We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, at the Brush Barn in Smithtown, NY.  The Brush Barn is located behind the historic Epenetus Smith Tavern.  Meetings start at 7:00 p.m.. Informal instruction is available for new spinners and those needing help prior to the meeting, from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m.   Many members come early to socialize, mentor, and spin.

The yearly membership fee is $25, and includes a monthly newsletter, use of rental equipment, library privileges, and participation in our workshops.

Attend one of our meetings and introduce yourself.  We would enjoy meeting you!
