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.
One of our exhibitors was asked for a custom made Peg Doll, she had payment and the customers name and address. She has lost the piece of paper with the name and address on but remembers the customer saying that she had been following this site. Please do get in touch if this is you
Examples of Members’ activities over the last couple of weeks.
What an inspirational lot. But the best thing ? Their willingness to share skills and ideas. No wonder our Guild is growing . . . good thing The Workshop has elastic sides !
Not only is spinning good for the spinner (it lowers the blood pressure) but it benefits wildlife too. Take a look at this luxurious des res found on Sharon’s farm.
New member Lynne came to her first meeting yesterday.
She learned how to card, how to spin her rolags into yarn, and went home the proud possessor of a ball of wool (small, and a tad “textured”) and new skills.
Yesss ! That’s what being a member of a Guild is all about.
Kath and Stan’s diamond anniversary and the success of WWW – two great reasons for Gerri’s great cake.
Ellie’s “Tribute to India” bag is finished – stunning !

“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 !
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
