Third AGM!

We got through the business of the AGM as quickly as possible and moved on to the show and tell! Here is Elaine modelling her hat and dress to match!
The show and tell is a great source of inspiration!
Beautiful contemporary vessel by Marguerita!
Kathrina Hughes from Feltmakers Ireland was our tutor for the day! We had such fun and learnt such a lot, we used cap merino which for some of us was a new experience! Above is Kathrina with a selection of her jewellery.
Very useful tools for punching holes in felt!
Deirdre and Jane happily felting away!
Barbara trying out the hole punch!
Nearly finished and looking good!
Hole punch worked well in this piece.
Great fun was had by all, and it was a good turn out for the AGM. Next felt in is 15th June and I (fiona harvey) will be taking it and we will be adding bits and pieces to felt to see what will felt in, an experimental fun morning, hopefuly ending up with a panel for a bag! Please keep checking out the blog over the summer to see what is going on, we have had 18000 hits so we are delighted so many of you keep checking the blog.
Hope to see you soon Fiona.
