Elly showed 20 of us how to weave giant Dorset Buttons. We all “set to” with a slim bangle, a crewel needle and some tapestry wool (kindly provided by Jo)

and by the end of the evening had produced a forest of apple trees, complete with flowers and a sheep !

Show and Tell revealed Stan’s double weaving and a length of twill (just my colour – hint, hint);

All that energy was fuelled by the always-welcome refreshments from Tim and Sandra.

Thanks to everyone for contributing to another great session.
