Carnival of Flowers Exhibition.

Our club has a major exhibition during Carnival of Flowers, with demonstrations of all many of our crafts, as well as sales of items made by our members. Our theme this year is "Textiles from the Garden" and will feature some of the wonder fibres we get from plants, as well as many of the natural colours that we can dye with using plant material. Check out the Facebook page:- Quilts, Stitches & Textiles for more information.

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.
