We had our June Weavers' meeting last week and I completely forgot to take any photos . . . sorry about that. Judy showed us lots of her lovely work and told us where all her drafts came from. She gave us ideas of how to get different results from the same warp. There should be a heap of photos. All I can do is apologise and show you some more of the scarves from the expo. This time some close-ups. The first ones are felted.

It's World Wide Knitting Week and it is also the week our Guild has a Creative Scarf Expo set up in an empty office building in town. Over 200 scarves are on display and many are for sale. The weavers are well represented but almost overwhelmed by an explosion of colour and texture from the knitters and felters. Here are a few of the exhibits.

|Chris sets up the weavers' display area with a demonstration loom and some of our work|
|Scarves in this group are all woven. Elsewhere the techniques are mixed together|
|The show could have been called 'All Things Bright and Beautiful'|
|Chris and Joan worked their display magic with bamboo rods and sky hooks|

The first two items in this post came with our Richmond friends.
|Note the fascinating braided twill. . .|
|and an interesting example of repp weave.|
|This is the detail of a wrap similar to the one Win had in the National Exhibition. The side panels are alpaca.|
|Among the 'tried and trusted' towels was this one from Joan. It would be such a pleasure to use.|
|Rose produced this lightweight wrap with bamboo warp separated by slub cotton panels of Bronson lace. The weft is the same cotton.|
