Summer Sensation

On saturday we were treated to a day packed with enjoyment, relaxation and learning! Liz Nicholls took the workshop, instructing us on how to make a light little neck scarf. To enable ths scarf to end up the correct shape the lay of the fibres is very important.
Below this photo illustrates the amount of shrinkage, as the final scarf sits on the original template.
  The day went in quickly and we all learnt something new!                                                           
Look at this beautiful piece of work, and this was Barbara's first workshop, we were delighted to see her as she had heard about us at the Creative stitch show!
Barbara Finlay laying out her layers very carefully using some of the great fibre blends we got from World of Wool, the colour combinations were great!
   Maria getting close to finishing her scarf!
    Some examples Liz brought for us to see, we had a choice of lengths which was a good idea. sorry my photos dont show the great colours in these scarves.
Remember to check out the workshop section as now the  application forms are available for the next few workshops, and the months between september and december we have lots of interesting topics covered,
Our next felt in is on September 15th at 10.15 and we have lots of starter kits for those of you who have not been before so all you need to bring is a towel and your enthusiasm, we will be delighted to see you.
