Fun club day

Our members are always creative. We start by buying gorgeous fibre then spinning or felting it. When spun, weaving the yarn into lovely garments.The woven tunic in a linen/silk blend was created by Gita and beautifully modelled by Carol. Donna and Bonnie are keen to make more felted hats.
