We are ready to celebrate our 40th Anniversary on May 18th with all the niceties of a traditional tea to welcome you. Come join us and see the wonderful talent of our Guild.
Watch for more Blog Posts as I catch up on our Show and Tell. They are published by calendar date of the event. Our members have so much to show at our Monthly Meetings, sometimes only one post displays on the page. Please see more posts by visiting the Archives to the right or Older Posts at the end of each post. Enjoy and thank you for visiting! (Credit to Karen B. for the background weaving. Photo by Barb H)

|Gail H, a friend of mine felted these dryer balls for me. As we talked about how she made them on the drive home Donna told us a real easy way to make them.|
|Nature provides everything we need. This pine tree became an ideal place to dry these felted scarves. This picture should be submitted to Spin Off magazine.|

On Thursday, I set out to complete a challenge from Jen to produce a work in fibre that looked like my calendar picture. A tea cosy seemed exactly the right shape! With help from Klaudia I was able to complete this project in one morning. Our guild members are so full of enthusiasm, great ideas and helpfulness that almost anything is possible!
|Here I am with all my equipment and Klaudia to help me felt a tea cosy|
|On a background of white roving, I began to layer my design.|
|The process involves a little soap, more hot water and lots of rubbing.|
