On Saturday 11th January 2014 I was lucky enough to be invited to the Hallamshire and District Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. It was really well attended by over 50 people!
Guild members brought their wonderful creations to the meeting and described their creative process.
I was particularly taken with a knitted prayer scarf where each stitch was accompanied by a mantra to bring a blessing to the wearer- wow!
The photo above shows the informative tutorial given by Helen who was showing the spinners how to add beads to plied yarn – amazing… and what a lovely addition to beautifully spun wool.
There were all levels of ability from new starters to the very experienced. Everyone was very friendly and very keen to share their knowledge and skills. I was made to feel very welcome and learned a lot from the group – many thanks everyone and keep up the good work.
