4th October 2014

First of all I want to let everyone know about beginner spinning classes coming up, they're starting on Thurs, 16 Oct, and Sat., 1 Nov, both from 10am-Noon and running for 6 weeks.   If you want to take one of them please email Kerry on

Yesterday was another good day, a few new people popped in to take a look around and we had some of our new members there as well which was lovely to see.   Pam brought along her new Aura wheel again, best part is she's still in love with it (important to love your wheel in my opinion).

Show off time again, hope I get all the names right!

Pam spun this corriedale blend from Anna Gratton on her new wheel.

She also finished this shawl in a gradient yarn

Isn't it stunning?   Love the tassles too.

Another item for Pam, this is a hooded cowl for a young relative; some handspun and finished with some merino possum.

Heather knit this scarf; unblocked as yet but very pretty.

She also spun this lovely pink skein of yarn, 2 separate braids of fibre that were then plied together

Pauline made this teal coloured skein, the colour isn't accurate.

Ria spun this corriedale and the barberpole at the top which is leftovers plied with a black yarn.

Chris P gave this woven piece to Jan, lovely work

Andrea has been practicing, this was from fibre she'd blending on her blending board, will be great for weaving

Another of Andrea's yarns, this is Romney

Felicity spun this beautiful skein, I think it might be Navajo plied.
See you in a few days, I'll post some photo's from the exhibition; not all of them though as I took 156 which might be a bit of a mouthful!
