Joan took the meeting on the topic of dyeing and overdyeing. Here she gives us an eye-opener about the results that can be achieved. The cones are the 'before' and the knitted jersey is 'after.' How cheerful is that!
And it's not all about wool. Here is some ribbon, purpose dyed for the job.
Autumn is here and Peg wastes no time getting into the autumn tones.
She loves to show off the beautiful colours of the recycled sari silk.
But it is her damask weaving that 'sings'.
Even when she's not weaving she keeps her fingers busy. This is a stuffed knitted tube, coiled, mounted and sold!
We wish Marilyn Rea-Manzies well in her transition from Christchurch to Hamilton. Here she and Peg browse through Peg's visitors' book for memories of the 'old days.' Go well Marilyn and get weaving soon!
