A look at the Spinners & Weavers Guild

The Falkland Islands Spinners and Weavers Guild was believed to have been set up back in the 1940's by a lady named Annis Roberts. Annis moved to the Falklands following her husband, who was a Sea Captain for Falkland Islands Company. Seventy years on and the guild is still going strong. Our reporter, Sophie Dulson, caught up with Margo Smallwood, the secretary of the guild, who told us more on the art, that is spinning.
