Spring Activities and competition

There was egg-citement in the air during our March meeting, when members took part in egg-related activities and brought their competition entries for judging (details further down page). There was a choice of natural dyeing eggs using onion skins and leaf masks, needle felting egg decorations and two methods of Dorset button making, all instruction given by members of the guild. Most people had a go at everything, with some lovely results. Plus there were some beautiful finished items on display this month, including the prize-winning lace shawl shown below.

Pardon the dreadful pun, but please take part in our latest members’ competition.

Your project must focus on weaving, spinning or dyeing (or any combination thereof). Beyond that it’s up to your imagination. Sign up £5 at the February meeting. Judging will take place at the March guild meeting, because the April meeting clashes with Easter Sunday.
