As is traditional now, our first meeting after Christmas is a spinning and weaving session.
Of course, it’s also a catch up with friends session too… It’s great to see everyone again after the break, and several of us were delighted to return to spinning after the break too (the more diligent ones had never stopped).
We had some new faces come along too, which is lovely. This is some first spinning from one of our new members,
which – we all tried to convince her, because it’s true – is a really good start, and it is impressive. She’s not going to have any problems.
Here’s another bobbin, whirling around this time, with an interesting blend on it:
Our externally tutored workshop for this year is on blending – details are on the events page – which should be really exciting. We’ll be using drum carders, like this one
which one of our members had at the meeting. She was using it to prep some of the fleece from her own shetlands, but the workshop will feature all sorts of wonderments!
Do check out the events page. The meetings are on the sidebar, but there’s more detail on the page. And this year sees the All Wales Guild event in Llanidloes (October), plus we’ll be spinning in public at Greenwood Forest Park again in the summer. Possibly with dinosaurs again…
