Common Cod Fiber Guild
Common Cod Fiber Guild sponsors fiber activities in the Boston area, as well as promoting local yarn stores, fiber artists, and fiber producers nationwide. Every month (September-November and January-May), on the 3rdd Friday of the month at 7PM, the Guild hosts speakers. We also hold other craft-y events, including field trips, meetups, and more.
Guild Meetings and Workshops

Guild Meetings are at 7PM on the 3nd Friday of the month September through November and January through June.  Most speakers from the guild meetings also teach workshops that weekend on anything fiber-related, from spinning to dyeing. It’s a great way to learn a skill from the experts themselves.

Crafty Saturdays and Informal Meetups

Crafty Saturdays are from 2-5PM on the 4th Saturday of every month on the 2nd floor of the Watertown Public Library at 123 Main Street in Watertown. Come hang out and craft, get inspiration, or take advantage of “drop-in crafty office hours”: Get help if you’re stuck with a project, learn to spin, etc. We also host many informal events and outings, including holiday parties and field trips. Check out our Meetup group for more information!
