March - Plant Fibres Talk

Teresinha Roberts

A fabulous afternoon with another talk from the very knowledgeable Teresinha Roberts.

Not only did we find out some fascinating and very interesting facts about the variety of plant fibres, we also got to admire once again, one of Teresinha's jumpers made from plant fibres no less!

February Skill Sharing

A fun day was had as we freed the drumcarder and the blending board from our overflowing cupboard.

We made blended batts and rolags. 

We even made rolags with simple dowels
