On a hot day

We had a guild session at Opawa St Marks and it was good.

There was a carload of goodies donated to the guild, some of this will be sold at the Destash Sale next Saturday, some was sold today to our members.   I might have gone home with a bump of lovely fibre.
some from the carload, some from our members.
Next Saturday from 10am till 3pm at the Sydenham Community Centre on Hutcheson St (off Colombo) will be the De-Clutter sale.  The idea of the sale is to fundraise for the Fibre and Textile Network which will in turn be promoting the guild.  We are supplying tea and coffee and baking and there will be tables for the individual guilds as well as one for the network.   The network's table raises funds for them (they have some lovely cards for sale), the guild tables raise funds for the guild running that table.   Come along and support us, if the weather is good there will be spinning outside, bring your wheel and a chair.   Parking is probably best on the old Sydenham School site across Brougham St.
Hopefully it's not quite as hot as today, 31 is a little too hot for me!

Today was a good day despite the heat though, lots of lovely items on the display table
Knitting, spinning, dyeing and all beautiful
There was much spinning going on at the guild as well, I didn't take photo's of any while there, but here's what I was working on.   I promise to take more photo's week after next
