Guild weekend

Woo hoo, it's a guild meeting this weekend. I have the newsletter printed and ready to distribute, will be there early to help set up and looking forward to catching up with friends.

On the menu this week is a News and Views session followed by a sharing of knowledge and skills on preparation on fibres for spinning. Always fun to attend these and see what tips you can pick up from others. So I shall get packing up my bag later with some fibres, my hand carders, flick carder and whatever else I can fit in.

In the afternoon we are welcoming a visitor for a talk - Fiona Morris: Designing and working with Handspun, where she will "explain how to use the yarn you have spun to its best advantage in knititng. I bring along a number of samples and items made from handspun yarn."

Looking forward to a good day.

I shall also be taking my ring for the exhibition as they are being collected together tomorrow. Can you wait until Sunday to see a picture? Hope so as I am trying to dodge the showers to get a nice picture of it outside in daylight, not that easy with the varied weather we are having at present. One minute you can be walking with a t-shirt and sunglasses on, the next you need full waterproofs, wellies and somewhere to shelter from the hailstorms!

See you Sunday with pictures, have a lovely weekend everyone.


  1. My parcel arrived yesterday thank you so much. Can't wait until I've got a spare 5 mins to have a go. I'll hopefully have a chance to talk to the spinner this weekend too.

    Can't wait to see your ring, and I hope you have a fab day with the Guild.

    Thank you again

  2. Sounds like it will be fun and informative!


Don't be shy, come and say hello. Your thoughts are always appreciated, I read them all and will endeavour to respond. Thank you x
