First meeting of our 2017-18 Season

Our members were very busy over the summer. They had lots to present at Show and Tell:  

Klaudia knit this self designed and custom fit bolero
style sweater using a cashmere, silk and baby alpaca yarn
And this top down in the round
raglan sleeved sweater using sock yarn


She knit the same sweater for her niece

Inspirations from Marianne's Eco Dye Workshop during Summer Studio Week using plants, flowers, nuts, bolts, nails or whatever, then steam to make these beautiful silk scarves:

Linda's Eco dyed silk scarves;
Donna's Eco dyed silk scarf and
the blue acid dyed scarf
Rust colour created by over-dying with Tumeric

Barb L re-purposed treasured linens dying them with Indigo
(some wrapped using rocks and elastic bands) and acid dyes.
The pretty patterns of the linens did not show when they were white. 

Inspired by his wife's weaving, Michael 'borrowed' her
rigid heddle loom to create a multitude of colourful scarves

Jan's Year of the Rooster Challenge entry. Read how to make one here:
Fibre Scarf using Solvy

Stephanie used a 4" zoom (pin) loom to create the turtle, sheep
and elephant; She wove a rep weave
on 4 shafts to create
coasters, book cover, towels and then made 4 bags from the scraps.

.
Doreen needle felted this cute little dog
and wove these cheerful  tea towels

.
.
.
Marg discovered her new washing machine felts the same slipper to 2 different sizes as shown in the photo. She produced so many lovely tea towels and still found time to spin and knit socks.

Ilse's SIL will appreciate his new striped socks. The yarn she spun and hand dyed was from Romney wool and the fur of a Samoid dog. The white hank was spun from Rambouillet wool.
Marianne H knit these soft cotton socks
