Tuesday Creations

The following pictures are of items created from our Tuesday group of ladies.  The scarf by Faye was hand spun and woven using Merino and Cashmere wool.  It will be a Christmas present for her lucky family in America.

The kookaburra was crocheted by Margaret.  It will be taken to a little boy in Scandinavia along with a book called Fabulous Aussie Fables.  The book was written and illustrated by another of our members named Julie.

Stick Weaving

Lee has created a mat by weaving together her hand-spun and dyed wool.  The mat was woven on a stick weaving loom and then stitched together.  The hand woven wool was dyed various colours using black beans, onion peels, turmeric, avocados and flowers.  The result is a very thick, unique and rustic mat.

Bettina Warping Up

Bettina is warping up her Sampleit loom in preparation to make a garment.  Bettina loves her little loom and gets so much done on it.  This time a jacket.  The mess in the background is getting ready for our felting workshop.  By Lyn A.

Lyn’s Twill

Lyn brought in a long handwoven piece of twill fabric to show us how she avoids creases.  Instead of folding her lovely weaving, Lyn rolls it onto a sturdy cardboard cylinder and voila!  No more creases.
