Sheep to Shawl

Sheep to ShawlAt each monthly meeting there is usually a talk and discussion of general interest often using slides or Power-Point presentation followed by discussion and a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits

This talk by Gill Sprakes was entitled "Sheep to Shawl" where she described how she obtained a fleece from different breeds of sheep, followed by cleaning, spinning, dyeing and then turning it into different kinds of garments and objects. To understand the basis of spinning members were given a small piece of fleece and shown how to spin it, by hand, into a length of yarn using two pencils.

Each year's programme has an interesting variety of talks and the meetings provide a chance for members to meet socially.
