Annual Spinning Camp

Due to the severe weather and local flooding our annual spinning camp at Bornhoffen has been postponed.

Everyone please  stay safe and stay indoors. Our thoughts are with those effected by the flooding.

CHRISTMAS PARTY

We had lots of fun, exchanging the gifts we had made. The theme was a bowl or a bag and there were many varied and wonderful creations.

And some more photos.

Weaving at Gold Coast Show

At the show our group set up some samplett looms, for people to weave on.

This proved to be very popular with children, having fun while learning to weave on a simple loom. One young lad, Anthony Pantano spent over an hour weaving away. His sidlings and cousins came and went, but Anthony was determined to finish the scarf.

What a great job he did, and he got to take the scarf with him.

GOLD COAST SHOW 2016

This year we had a lovely display in the arts and crafts dome. Many members entered their beautiful craft in spinning, weaving and felting. They were rewarded with some great prizes. Congratulations to all who entered.

Many members demonstrated spinning and weaving over the show weekend and we had lots of interest from the public, especially children who had a great time weaving on the samplett looms.

Here are some photos of our display.
