A Minute of Silence

Today we remembered those who have gone, and those who were injured 3 years ago.  We reflected on how important the guild has been to us, and also how important we've been to it.    Our thanks to all our members, together we have supported each other through a very difficult time, and we continue to do so.

We lost our own premises, but through the generosity of members with their homes we continued to meet until temporary premises were found through the hard work of our members.   They continue to work hard and due to their efforts we will soon be in our new premises at The Tannery.   Thank you to everyone.

Today we also had some lovely items on our display table; these are also worth celebrating.

My (Rachelle) red shawl, the pattern is Aurora Australis and I'm very pleased with it.

All the yarn we spun as a group

Mary Catherine knit this from some silk she bought in Melbourne

This woven shawl is Valerie's, not yet washed but looking lovely all the same.

Jenny spun this and then her husband knit it up; lovely work.

More of Mary Catherine's work from Anna's lovely fibre

Jenny also knit this sock from Opal sock wool

Celia made this vest for her husband, it'll be lovely and warm this winter and the length was good and long too.

I don't know who knit this, it was gone by lunchtime, a good thick rug though.
