Silk spinning – bring your wheel and Nan will bring some silk was the meeting brief! What a great turnout.
Nan brought along lots and samples of spun and woven silk plus different types of silk for us to spin
We replayed Patsy Z’s DVD while we spun
Audrey and I attended the Levin Spin In. Great to catch up with friends and take advantage of the trading stalls. My top purchase was a cauliflower for $3.00. I wasn’t expecting that purchase!
OFG was well represented at Creative Fibre’s annual festival. This year ‘Fibrant’ was held at Pukekohe. Esther, Audrey, Flo, Caroline and Fiona attended the festival and had lots to show and tell about the wonderful weekend.
The work being produced by members still delights and inspires other members. Tomoko knitted a cushion cover (after a long break from knitting)
The theme for 2016 is silk.
After viewing a DVD on spinning silk we then checked out samples of the beautiful fibre.
