Our group is demonstrating in the main pavilion, we will be spinning and weaving. Mudgeeraba Showgrounds 24 and 25 June. Here is a sneek peek of the display. Thanks to Anna, Pam, Yu and Glenda.
Recently our group attend the annual Mudgeeraba Street Party. A great community event , where our members displayed crafts they had made, and got the community involved in weaving, spinning knitting and crochet. Lots of fun and great entertainment.
The Gold Coast & Hinterland Spinners &Weavers Group Inc are having a stall at The Potters Market on Sunday 20 November. It is at the Gold Coast Potters Assoc on Ashmore Rd, see map below. See you there from 9am to 2pm, great place to buy handmade Christmas gifts.
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.
What a fun day we had at club using our drum carders and blending boards. It was very creative and colourful. Arty batts were made with lots of luscious fibres and Pam was going wild with the blending board. We produced batts, rolags and punys!!!! Yes Pam was very quick witted and had us all in stitches of laughter!!
Dayle showed off her gorgeous hat she made at our recent felting afternoon. Well done Dayle.
