Today at our weekly crafty fix, there was a lot going on! How unusual? Ha !!!
People were warping up looms for our hands on display at this weekends Gold Coast Show, make sure you visit the craft pavilion to see our awesome creative entries.
Other members were busy getting sock yarn, balled, hanked or tied up in knots for dying. I was quietly trying to spin when all of a sudden out of the hands of the ladies next to me, their sock yarn was all caught up in my spinning wheel, all tangled in the bobbin and caught in the band. I know I need help with my spinning, but really! It happened not once but twice, what are the odds? The culprits shall remain nameless.
Anyway the sock yarn was dyed in lovely colour gradients, well done. Be careful I may have to sabotage your knitting!
The Mudgeeraba Show is on this weekend and we have over 100 entries in the Spinning, Weaving and Felting section. Come on down and see all the beautiful handcrafts. 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.
