Spinning, weaving and interesting talk

Our month of visits is over and business returns to normal in September, with our monthly Saturday meeting at Flitwick Village Hall.

As well as member's carrying out their own work, there was advice for a new weaver who had just finished her first scarf.  One of our members walked her through taking the weaving off the loom and various finishing options.

In other news, we saw samples from the Solar Dyeing skillshare held in the summer, ranging from a soft yellow to a darkish red.  Talking around the results led our conversation from there to indigo, to recent finds in Peru, East Anglia and the history of textiles.  There aren't many afternoons one gets to spend eating cake, doing something you love and having an interesting conversation!
