July Meeting

We were lucky to have another sunny day for our July meeting.
We welcomed new member Lizzie, seen here on the right.

And this is Lizzie's new toy. This is the "before" picture.
With a bit of advice from Judy - and others - we think she will do well,
so look forward to an "after" picture before too long.
Don't you love the buttons on her detachable sleeves!

Joan had been on an overseas trip and here she is showing samples of tweed fabric from the Isles of Lewis and Harris

She tells us that tweed and tartan are everywhere in Scotland
Thank you Joan. We love seeing the results of your travels

More from the June Meeting

Although we are all weavers and meet to discuss our work, most of us do other things as well, so our show and tell usually includes some of these extras. Here are some "other" items that showed up at our June meeting.
Nancy's knitted alpaca throw was light and lovely and beautiful to handle
This is a very creative piece from Wendy. What is it - you may ask . . .

Here it is on Fern, our pin-up model. It is a cowl and a hood in one. A howl . . . ?

The cute boots are from Wendy also. Who says they have to match?

Another Wendy Wonder. This is a cowl knitted in silk (or maybe a silk/wool mix?)
Betsy knitted this hat from her own handspun - perfect for winter
Win had spent a very busy weekend felting this fashion garment

and here is the back view.

Rose brought along a lace work in progress - feeling happy to have learned how to turn a corner.
