GUILD NEWS

Lesley is collecting photos for a 2019 guild calendar and wonders if members can contribute.  The theme is ‘Colour’  and you can see some examples on p.22 of the newsletter.  Some of the yarns are set with flowers or plants of similar colour in the background.  Do have a go.

Our JULY MEETING was very well attended and through the morning, Sue and Jackie gave  superb demonstrations on acid dyes and natural dyes with some excellent results.

Lesley gave a workshop to make beaded yarn necklaces in the afternoon - hope to have some photos soon.

And- Yvonne and Darren Hoskins were selling unusual fleeces that they source and displayed them outside under a gazebo - and boy was it hot.  This is the longest heatwave I can remember! A very busy day!

And the next day - a dyeing day in Trisha Roberts garden - again well attended and an amazing array of different dyeing techniques.  Hope to have some pics of this soon.  Well done Trisha! This made it a lovely guild weekend!

The AUGUST MEETING holds the weaving display and competition, raffle, shared lunch and Members Sales Tables.

For the weaving display and competition,   please bring your latest weaving projects and a brief description of method and materials.
