What a perfect day to be indoors sharing craftiness with friends. What a variety on the Show and Tell table today РKnitting, Crochet, Blankets, Jumpers, Scarves, Felting, Beanies, Bolts of cloth, Belts, Wooden carving, Yarn, Pens, Quilting, Patchwork, Embroidery Рa huge pool of talent being shared and admired.

What a pleasure to welcome, and hear from, the HWSD Guild of Tasmania President Alan Shaw, thank you Alan for coming down to our group. I hope the fish were biting on the way home.

We thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt by our Barista Team, Irene and Tony – and are going to miss them for the rest of the year as they take a well earned break and travel up to sunny QLD.

Congratulations to Helen and Mike Dowd, of Dowpaca, they bought home a bevy of ribbons from the Launceston Show. 1st place for Lavinia Рa beautiful grey; 1st place for Katie -a white; and Reserve Champion Junior Female for Katie Рgreat breeding Dowpaca! No wonder the alpaca items they produce are so heavenly soft.

Letting you know that Sheena Jack is having a weaving exhibition at Margate Museum on Thursday 5th November. From Carpets to Damask – Sheena’s work is wonderful so it will be worth a visit. And remember Terry Tonga Choi-Lundberg’s “One” Art Sale at Studio Karma between 13 – 22 November.

Pauline shared Knitted Knockers with us. 100% knitted cotton breast prosthetics – want to know more? Email them or check them out at 106 David st, East Devonport.

Finally, a HUGE THANK YOU to Etsuko Sakai and Setsuko Okuda, visiting from Japan. Etsuko dressed in Kimono and played the Koto, it was beautiful to both see and hear. Setsuko shared her silk knot work with crafters and it was of interest to many.
