Change of Plan

Some of us made it to the Coldharbour Mill open day. Here you see Jacqui, Ness and little K. admiring the very sweet Alpacas, from Ashill Alpacas.
Various problems have caused us to call off the Close Knit attendance at the Fair on the 27th July,in the High Street,Taunton. We will, however, be meeting informally in the Old Library gardens, from 12 midday on the same day, to just knit. Join us if you can.

Not Fibrefest

On Friday, some of us were lamenting the fact that Fibrefest is not happening this year. Well, guess what? Coldharbour Mill is having an Open day, and Summer Art Show. Saturday 19th July. 11am - 4 pm. Free. There will be demonstrations of Spinning, Weaving and Feltmaking. Participation will be encouraged. There will be Alpacas in attendance. So, see you there!
[ I also picked up some flyers about Fibrefest NEXT year, 22nd and 23rd August 2009. I will have them at the next (August) meeting, although folk may pick them up at the open day].

July Meeting

What a jolly meeting, last night. Quite a lot of people, and such skills! With Rosalind carding, and Chris hand spinning and everyone else knitting, we had a 'start to finish ' of hand-knits going on. And plenty of cake.

The Oxfam squares are going well - Ness has some, as well as those in the photo. The collection reflects our range of expertise, in the level of ambition of pattern. All beautifully made.
