Woolfèis 2016

Woolfeis 2016 
It is with great disappointment that Woolfeis 2016 will have to be cancelled; Jill is still the main person organising events, and while she had hoped to pick up enough time after caring for her mother before her death some weeks ago, she has just had an operation. With the weeks of recovery ahead, and the unknown of how her fibromyalgia will respond, and too small a team of lovely volunteers to pick up the organisation this year, it is best that we concentrate on 2017 to make that even better than before.

The hall is booked, and the market is planned on the Thursday – SOOO .. if anyone wants to have a FUN Informal Fibrous Get Together on the Friday or Saturday that would be great, let me know and I will keep the bookings .. also any one locally who was planning workshops, make sure we get all the details so we can promote them to locals and visitors in the area.
(and we have already had a positive response to having some informal fibre fun .. so keep on sharing .. and see you then.. )

Deborah Grey is running  a Fibre prep and Drop spindle spinning in Oban on Sat 23rd July (contact Deborah Grey )

Woolfeis Workshops : Button making

Do you struggle to find the ideal button to go with the jumper you have spent hours perfecting?

Or perhaps you have hand dyed some fleece and you want something as unique to complements the colour you have tweaked to get just right.

Why not pop along and learn how to make your own buttons from polymer clay.

Any colour you care to imagine can be created along with interesting textures and patterns.

Bring a sample of wool or the garment you need the perfect button for and Sally Weaser will help you add the final touch to your creation.

There will be two workshops, 11-1pm and 2-4pm. £10 per person.
