Saturday 8th April 2017

Today was a very busy day, not enough seats at times which is good to see!  Lots of members taking advantage of our wonderful rooms.
As a result the table was very full of wonderful things.  Sit back, make sure you have a cup of tea or coffee.  This could take a little time!


Rachelle has been spinning Haunui for Kate of Heavenly Wools for the Festival later this month.  This one is undyed and is plied with sewing thread with beads on it.
and this one is Haunui and silk in a gradient



Diane has been knitting for Pregnancy Help.  This box full is from just 2 balls of Crucci acrylic yarn


Joanne has been knitting again, this pi-shawl is lovely!

Kerry needed some fingerless mitts, so these were made.

Lynn made this gorgeous wall hanging for a friend of hers


and this tea towel on one of the guild looms

This is also Lynn's work from a workshop at Ashfords.
Meg's tapestry is now framed and ready to be hung on the wall

Heather has been making blankets, a lovely weight to them.


Mary Catherine created this from a range of handspun yarns that she'd made from Anna's fibre, it looks fantastic on too.
Jan F has been making hats, good timing with the way the weather has turned!


Margaret W made this blanket for Pregnancy Help

Isn't this a wonderful little pincushion?  Barbara from the Needleworkers's Guild made this.

Iris has been practicing for her Spinner's Course.

and then she spun thick yarn for a blanket she's working on

Rose has been making soldierly bunting in Otago colours

and Canterbury colours too, very cool!

Somehow I missed finding out who wove these, looking good though.

My camera didn't like this one, suspect it might be a sampler, not sure who again.

Ok, my camera is having a hissy fit here, not sure why.  This photo on my computer looks fine, but for some reason it's a jigsaw when I upload it to Blogger.  Ignore the oddness and admire the lovely yoked jersey Mandy knit from handspun.

Rosalie has been using her inkle loom to make this tape.


I think this is Heather's sampler

and this is definitely Heather's bag, love the subtlety of the colours.
This many coloured shawl is actually cotton and was knit by Ellie
A close up of Holly's baby wrap, viscose weft with merino warp
This is Ellie's as well, a lovely squishy cowl, just in time too!

And finally, this jersey is actually quite a bit deeper in colour, but my cell camera just can't do it justice.  The yarn is probably a light fingering (3-ply) and it's knit by Margaret S for herself.
