The Central Coast Handweavers, Spinners and Textile Arts Guild were proud to demonstrate their skills at the 50th Mangrove Mountain Country Fair (19th of October 2013). “The Fair” as its known to locals is one of the longest continually running events in NSW operated by a rural community, for the benefit of the local community in.
Guild members Bev Smith, her daughter Naomi and Naomi’s family kept their wheels and carders at full pace all day as visitors stopped by to learn about the Guild’s crafts and watch wool and alpaca fleece be turned into beautiful yarn.
The younger visitors to the fair were particularly interested – perhaps some of them think yarns are something Grandpa tells and clothes come just from the shops. Guild members have again been asked to set up and weave their magic at the 2014 Country Fair, and we hope to see you there!
