7th February 2015

A relatively quiet day today due to the Declutter sale on at St Mark's Church in Opawa.    We had a  good group though and one of our newer members was working on a rigid heddle loom doing tablet-weaving which I've seen on the internet before but never in real life!
This is tablet weaving and is going to be a belt.   I definitely want to see more of this, it's fascinating!
We also had yarn, weaving, knitting and a flax bag (kete) on display

Rachelle's fulled singles yarn, it lost 18m off the total due to the shock treatment

Jenny knit this lovely hat from an old pattern; it uses short rows for shaping.

Ria used up the warp left on her loom to make this beautiful piece of wool fabric

detail of the fabric

Jan F brought in her finished kete; lovely work.
