Crafters January 2018

Hi all

What a great start to the New Year on this perfect Monday morning.

You would not want to be anywhere else.

I am always looking forward to our show and tell, and it never disappoints. We had a table laden with the most beautiful craft items and there was a great variety of techniques.

Pauline was again in her most inventive mode and astounded us with cartridge ink dyed flowers. We had beautiful scarves, shawls, socks and pillows, and Winn made a stunning wall hanging of” the Kiss”. So much talent in this lovely group of boys and girls.

We were treated by our great barista team to some great coffees and lots of biscuits to keep us all happy.

I hope you will all have a great month and we will see each other next time.

Kind regards  Johanna


Crafters December 2017

Crafters gathered to catch up with the news, see who had been busy doing what, and to celebrate the end of another fun year with some Xmas lunch. Thank you to everyone as we enjoyed wholesome food, nibbles and juice. Such a lot of local fare, another great reason to live in the Huon valley.

Congratulations to all the Crafters who were successful at the Huon Show 2017, your names appeared in the Huon News, which Pauline was thoughtful enough to bring along. Some crafters have been thru trials and tribulations this year and it is wonderful that the group can support one another in those times. Lyndel had a knitted shawl, (or was it 2), by Stephen West. He has presence on both Ravelry and Instagram, and his website is here. Some fabulous patterns along with the weird and wacky.

Once again Irene & Tony paired up to give us Barista service and keep the kitchen ticking along, truly fabulous, thank you both.

The little Xmas booties and Xmas puddings were knitted by supporters of The Huntington’s Disease Association of Tasmania, and Crafters were pleased to support them in turn by purchasing their wares and plumping them up with notions from The Stash Cupboard and with chocolates. Enjoy.

The next gathering is January 8th.

Merry Xmas, and we wish you health, happiness and good fortune in the year ahead.

Crafters November 2017

What a pleasant day to have spent by the Huon river, we are blessed to have such a great hall in such a fabulous park. Many people spun on the verandah today, picture perfect. If the weather is similar in December perhaps we could take some spinning wheels to the small floating pontoon and get a pic of spinners ON the river!  🙂
Some beautiful craft on display today, nice to hear people tell us how they crafted their items. The Huon Show is coming up on Saturday, this NEXT Saturday 18th November, entries are accepted on the Thursday evening and the Friday, so please consider entering, your talents are AMAZING.

Crafters October 2017

Crafters had a busy day riverside this month, what a variety of talent and items. Buy or Barter had plants, books, black alpaca fleece, hand crafted soaps and more. Show and Tell had it all; crochet, handknit, machine knit, quilt, carded fibre, yarn, baby sets. Great to see and share our skills and knowledge. Patterns were swapped, techniques were learnt, that’s what it is all about.

There were two little books left behind, so gorgeous, they will be there again next meeting. Titled Wool-Girl and the Balls of Wool, the graphics are fabulous and may inspire children to play with yarn at the same time as contributing to a bigger picture. It is a local initiative supporting a global cause, see Knit-A-Square.

Hobart Show is coming up, October 25 – 28.

Medieval Festival in New Norfolk, October 28 and 29th.

Deloraine Craft Fair 3 – 6 November, several of our members will be plying their excellent wares, as will a state-wide collective of Guild Members.

I may have mixed up who quilted what today, let me know if I have things wrong in the captions.  🙂

Time for a change at Judbury Crafters, we are looking for some new brooms to run things 2018 onwards.
