2016 4EWE

A very kind farmer recently made us a gift of eight lovely fleeces.  She said that, in return, it would be nice to have a little something made from one of them.  And so four of us “set to” and spun a bobbin-full each.  Sharon plied the yarn, and Geri dyed some of it before knitting a pair of gloves.

Yet another example of the friendly world of woolly people.

So … how did we do ?

My last post on Woolly Worstead 2016.  So . . . how did we do ?

Were our Members the best team workers ever ?  YES

Were the stall holders happy ? VERY

Did the demonstrators have lots of interest ?  YES

The refreshments ?  DIVINE

The musicians ?  EXCELLENT

Did we fulfil our mission to teach ?  YES

How about the visitors ?  LOVELY

Did we make a pound or two towards the maintenance of the Workshop ?  YES

So . . . shall we do it again ?  Watch this space !!!

Woolly Worstead is finally here !

“Fibre Fun for the Whole Family”

Saturday and Sunday, 18th and 19th June 2016

10 am – 4 pm

After all the planning and hard work, all that’s left to do is enjoy meeting folks, enjoy Jill’s delicious home baked food, enjoy looking at (and maybe treating ourselves to) all the goodies our traders have brought, and sit back and enjoy the music on Sunday.

This week’s pics were taken at our meeting on Tuesday.  Ellie is modelling a delicious shawl crocheted for Guild funds by Gerri (snapped up by Margaret), and Rose, Rita and Sue are labelling tombola prizes, under Sharon’s strict supervision !
