Nettles4textiles

There are now several Utube videos about processing nettles and Cara has given us all the steps in the newsletter. It would be nice if we could use say 5 nettles and produce a yarn during July and August


Our 40th Anniversary Exhibition was to be held at Braintree Museum this year and was postponed till June 2022.  The dates are June 11th 2022 - June 25th 2022.  More about this soon
