Freeform crochet with Prudence Mapstone

On the weekend our members enjoyed an inspiring workshop with Prudence Mapstone.

Prudence has kindly loaned a collaborated yarn bombing work to our project. Thanks Prudence.

We learned many new stitches, layout design and how to fit and sew scrumbles together. Even though it was hot we kept crocheting and had lots of fun.

The trees in Mudgeeraba are going to look wonderful.

Welcome 2017

So our group is back for a creative 2017. We have many projects on the go.

Started off the year with a tapestry weaving workshop. Soon to be followed with a freeform crochet workshop in February.

Some pics of the tapestry weaving. Well done everyone.

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.

Felting fun

Our members had lots of fun felting a group project. Many thanks to Joan, Judith and Karen for dyeing the fibre wonderful colours. Our members joined in to lay out the fibres and embellish the colourful creation, followed by lots of splodging, laughter, pressing and chanting, giggles, rolling and throwing and getting wet.

Of course the felted fabric looks great and will be made into bookmarks next week.
