Queenstown Group Inaugural Gathering: 5 May 2018
Rain, wind, torrential rain, more wind and did I mention the rain!??!!! It was foul. Despite the weather five intrepid souls made it to our first spinners and weavers day here in Queenstown. Stratie and Rob from Zeehan came weighed down with spinning and weaving paraphernalia and lots of weaving show and tell. It was good to see her out and about again and enjoying herself. Mardi wants to learn spinning and brought a nice old Ashford traditional that needs a little work and a few new parts. Next month we will have her spinning. Judy needed help assembling her samples loom as she had put the instruction manual in "a safe place" never to be seen again. I know what that's like. Susan only came to observe but she let slip that she has done tapestry weaving on home made looms and has a room full of "stuff". Her stuff might surprise us. We had a fun day crafting and solving the worlds problems over many a cuppa and I filled two bobbins!
Look forward to the next one.
