This month's gathering will be the first working meeting of the year and will focus on weaving. It will enable all members to familiarise themselves with the many and varied aspects the craft and aims to give everyone the opportunity to learn something new.
We have already been promised a number of examples of equipment to demonstate and hope that these will include:
Tapestry frames, cards, commercial and wooden frames, both plain and nailed
Anything that members would like to bring with them, whether listed above or not, would be most welcome.
