August Meeting

Chris wove cushions in a variegated Touch Merino yarn
and also a scarf using variegated yarn in the warp

Betsy also used Touch yarn. Hers is a boucle wrap
Lovely to see a handwoven double corduroy rug. This one was made by Joan
Cute and cosy. Win made these felted slippers
Trish models a rain hat made of felted yak hair.
The rain runs off the tails to direct it away from your face.

The rain hat was one of Joan's treasures. Next post we will see some of the fascinating fabrics she brought back from Bhutan and Laos.

There was a lot of interest in these bright and cheerful cottons that Tricia has kindly donated to the group. Watch for results!
 Anne found this delicate felted scarf by Raewyn Penrose when she was on holiday in the North Island.

July Meeting

 Joan had recently returned from her travels and teased us by showing only one piece of fabric she brought back. We look forward to another meeting when she will show us heaps more.
 Anne had several innovative scarves to show. Here she is wearing one of them.
 New member Muff impressed us with her hand-woven willow basket.
 Noelene wrapped up warmly. She said her knitted scarf was not new but it came in for a lot of attention.
Jen is really getting into her stride. Here she is wearing a recently woven scarf.

More photos to come soon.
