Plenty of plans are being made for workshops and events.

Our first exhibition of the year will be at the Royal Toowoomba Show over the period 12 - 14th April 2018. We open our rooms to showcase our crafts, with demonstrations of our unique crafts and sales of our members work. Many of our members will also have exhibits in the Handicraft Section of the Show.

Our Banner this month is a wool throw, by Pat, who used many different yarns, but the main colour comes from yarn she was given that came from the New Lanark Mills in the UK.

The Toowoomba Spinners, Weavers & Dyers Group was formed by a small number of women in 1977. A few people who had similar interests and wanted to meet on a regular basis started the club. A notice was placed in the local paper and the club started. Emma McLellan was the founder with a few other women. Lucy Frost and Joyce Baker (Foundation members) are still current members.

Membership in 2017 stands at around 60 and includes men and women from all age groups.

While spinning was the initial interest the organisation now also includes all fibre crafts, including weaving, felting, dyeing and much more.
