WINTER NEWSLETTER

DIARY DATES  

 

Winter has arrived, it’s time to wrap ourselves in wool and enjoy the longer evenings by the fire spinning, weaving, knitting or felting!
 
 
Our busy season has commenced again as we travel to all the textile events, it’s now 20 years since we first ‘hit the road’ with Glenora Weaving and Wool. Bob and I really enjoy seeing so many of our customers and friends at these shows. Please check out the diary dates listed below and visit our stand, it’s a great opportunity to see our unique products and to purchase show specials!
 
The Celebration of Wool held recently in Canberra was extremely successful! Excellent crowds, great traders and perfect weather all combined to make this two day event exciting and vibrant, one not to be missed next year!
 
 
The 70th Anniversary of the Handweavers and Spinners Guild will be an interesting function held on the 24th and 25th June. The committee are planning a juried exhibition, trading hall, demonstrations and competitions as well an entertaining Anniversary Dinner and Awards Night. nsweave@spin.net.au
 
The highlight of every wool addict’s calendar is the Australian Sheep and Wool Show held at Bendigo in July. This major event has entertainment for the whole family with hundreds of traders, fashion parades, wool-craft exhibition, demonstrations, shearing competition and of course, sheep, sheep and more sheep! Our stand in the Osborne Pavilion has been extended this year and we are planning to hold mini wool-craft workshops, so come along and have fun learning a great technique or skill.  www.sheepshow.com
 
Our new gallery page has some lovely photos of our customers projects, plus knitted garments modelled by one of our beautiful grand-daughters If you have a nice image of recent work which you are happy to share, please email it to us with information on the fibre, yarns or pattern, it will inspire us all.
 
Our on-line shop is very popular but we also welcome personal visits to our business by appointment, our attractive display area is a mecca for textile lovers. Don’t forget that you can also phone or email for advice or assistance with any queries, we are very happy to assist our customers.
