Weaving Magic

A lively night at the Weavers’ Workshop.



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);



Susan’s deliciously textured first weaving of her handspun on a rigid heddle;


Bev’s handspun, knitted hats using fleece from her own sheep and a fabulous needle-felted Jiminy Cricket.



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

Thanks to everyone for contributing to another great session.
