Well we are well and truly in the swing of the new year.

Our AGM is being held on Thursday 21st February 2019. We hope to see all our members there.

We had our first workshop of the year, with Betty teaching macrame, providing everyone with a blast from the past. But a very useful craft to know, producing lovely results.

We are getting ready for our exhibition during the Toowoomba Royal Show. We will open our rooms for sales of our members work over the period 28 - 30 March 2019.

Drop in and say hello, and see all the wonderful work our members have produced throughout last year. We also will have demonstrations of these crafts thoughout each day.

The Handicrafts Section in the Founder's Pavilion will also showcase the very best of our crafts of spinning, weaving, felting & dyeing. Make sure you drop in and see all the entries.

All visitors and prospective new members are welcome to come along and check us out.

Keep an eye on Diary Dates for any closures.

 

Our Banner this month is a hand woven scarf by Gretchen, using hand spun wool .

The Toowoomba Spinners, Weavers & Dyers Group was formed by a small number of women in 1977. A few people who had similar interests and wanted to meet on a regular basis started the club. A notice was placed in the local paper and the club started. Emma McLellan was the founder with a few other women. Lucy Frost and Joyce Baker (Foundation members) are still current members.

Membership in 2017 stands at around 60 and includes men and women from all age groups.

While spinning was the initial interest the organisation now also includes all fibre crafts, including weaving, felting, dyeing and much more.
