Saturday 04 April 2014 and School Holidays

First up I'm going to put in the details for our school holiday programme that starts on Tuesday.  Photo's of today's work will come afterwards.

The school holiday programme is one of the things that helps to bring in some income to pay our rent and also helps to keep our membership costs down.   If you have relatives who are 8 years old or older and who might like to learn to weave on a rigid heddle loom point them in this direction!

Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th of April - Weave a bag
Thursday 9th April - Weave a set of coasters
Wednesday 15th and Thurdsay 16th April - Weave a bag

Cost of the day's class is $25 with all materials provided, just bring lunch and plenty of enthusiasm.  The class runs from 9.30am to 3pm at 11 Tanner St, which is the Christchurch Guild rooms within The Tannery complex.

Enrolments are confirmed with payment.

Contact Sue on 021-1386141 (text or call)
or Gail on email gailrussel@xtra.co.nz  for more details

Both my boys took part in this last holidays and enjoyed their time at the guild as well as coming home with a useful woven item to keep.

Saturday 04th April

A fairly quiet day today, a lot of people would have been spending time with families and I hope they all had a lovely day and safe travels.   For those of us there it was also a family day with 4 children being included in the group.  2 were learning to spin, 1 was knitting and the other was quietly crafting across the room.

Heather has been busy spinning lovely merino yarn dyed by Anna Harris and plying it with navy merino.

Same navy plying, but another colourway for the second single; totally different look!

Emily was busy creating this crocheted brooch, she taught herself to crochet from YouTube, well done Emily!


Dawn knit this shrug from handspun alpaca; it's lovely and soft and lightweight.
