Fleece to finished garment challenge
Our July meeting will take place at Diana Bird’s lovely farm. She has very kindly offered us the opportunity to enjoy our Guild day there again this year. There will be no meeting at Stanton St John.
We will be holding a fleece to finish garment challenge. Teams will be randomly chosen on the day. The garment to be created is a scarf. this can be knitted, woven, or crocheted. it can be one whole garment or patch worked together.
Feel free to bring anything you like to embellish the garment with – beads, bells, sparkle, coloured fibre to add to the wool we will supply. The more decorated the better!
Heckling (within reason), suggestions and encouragement are allowed, there may very well be rosettes for a variety of categories. This is intended to be a fun, busy and probably just a bit silly day!
Bring the tools of your chosen craft with you – spinning wheels, carders, looms already warped, knitting needles, crochet hooks, scissors, darning needles in case you want to work together to create your scarf in sections. Paper and pen for planning may be useful. All we will supply is your fleece – washed but uncarded so the rest is up to you and your team.
Tea, coffee and cake will be supplied but please feel free to bring additional cake to help Diana out – we like cake!
You will also need to bring your own lunch and a chair please.
