The big day at last!
Thanks to John MacGibbon for some of the photos – his are the ones labelled (J).
Our fibre friends from near and far joined us for a feast of craft and colour (J)
The traders’ bright display lured us all (J)
Colourful fibre everywhere
which all had to be admired (J)
and choices made (J)
after careful discussion. (J)
There were dyes, in case you wanted even more colour,
equipment to try,
and techniques to experiment with – how about felting around a stone? (It makes a cute little bag.)
Of course we showed off our work – with this display
and with a fashion parade. Three members just happened to have made the same jacket pattern. (J)
Our friends the Wairarapa Felting Group have been making jackets too. (J)
We can’t end without the usual food photo – this is just a tiny sample (and half eaten already).
It was a great day, hard work but so worth it.
