It sounds like the venue was wonderful (aside from the food, which was ok), those members who went did come back with some beautiful fibres to spin and some wonderful memories.
Next year will be at Dunedin which will be more accessible for the rest of us who couldn't justify costs in going to Wellington.
Anna Harris was there with her large bins of fibre again, she is so bad for us! I went away with 3 new bumps of fibre and I know quite a few others did as well. Despite how bad she is for the budget I'm always glad to see her. She got a merit award from the festival for a skein of 50/50 Merino/Silk that she spun over the last 2 years. Unfortunately we don't get a photo of it as it sold. I did see a small photo in the Festival information pack though, and it was lovely.
And now it's time for photo's of finished work. As we had a lot of people there today there was a lot of work to display,and I'm afraid I can't remember who everything belongs to. Oh, and while I remember until we move into The Tannery the first Saturday of each month is going to be a longer day running from 10am till 4.30pm, it'll be in the notices this month. Hopefully next month the roadworks might be finished and parking/access might be easier.
