November 2015 started with the news that five of our members did very well in the handcraft classes at the Wairarapa A&P Show. Phyllis took two trophies with her spinning and knitting –
Marion won the points prize, and Liz, Lynette and Josie also won ribbons.
Next we were lucky to have a weekend of classes with Kathy McLauchlin, who taught us some of the interesting possibilities of plying on Saturday. On the Sunday it was silk, which took some concentration. That’s Kathy on the left.
Then came our AGM – you won’t want to hear about an AGM.
The next weekend a lot of us climbed into a minibus and about 4 cars and went to the Bush Spin-in at Woodville. It was well publicised and very well signposted
Our members shopped and chatted, and enjoyed watching Trish and Josie tackle one-handed knitting!
Meanwhile work has been proceeding on the spinning display in the Wool Shed. We’ll show you more about that next time.
But I have to sneak in a few photos from the first of December, our Christmas party –
Much hilarity was had by all.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
