Fibre-East 2015 – Part 1 – What we did…

July 30, 2015

It’s July! It’s Fibre-East!

Practically the entire guild took a trip across to Ampthill to demonstrate their skills, encourage others to “Have A Go!” and most importantly sample the shopping opportunities over the Fibre-East weekend.

The Saturday crew were lucky with the weather, the Sunday people less so, not that it dampened their spirits! Luckily all of Fibre-East is undercover, just some dashing between marquees and buildings to keep purchases dry.

 

Spinning wheels at the ready:

Alongside the spinning we also demonstrated peg loom and rigid heddle weaving:

We had some splendid examples of our work on the stall:

Including the black squirrel, well we do meet in Letchworth.

Everyone came home with bags of shopping. Part 2 will cover some of the lovely things we saw.
