Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Guild

Spent a good few hours yesterday at the Hallamshire Weavers, Spinners and Dyers guild. What an eye opener!

Women with spinning machines, top whorls, bottom whorls, knitting needles, fleeces, roving, wool tops, a kumihimo loom, weavers of card, plastic and newspaper – A true cornucopia of skills, machines, creativity and knowledge.

Japanese Braiding – Kumihimo.

We were welcomed and engaged with – true skill sharing and comraderie.

My friend Vic and I are in possession of two fleeces, straight off the sheep – we came home with enough to do until the next meeting and then who knows we may learn to dye, or to spin … the worlds our whelk! (oysters are too costly)

You can follow our adventures and laugh with us!
