Dyeing Day. Our club held a dyeing day on Saturday 31st October, which was a huge success. Members were able to try ice dyeing, natural dyeing and solar dyeing, and the results were amazing.

We will have another one early in the new year, as there was so much interest in this one.

Everyone was inspired to try more at home.

We are now looking at our end of year functions, and celebrations for our 40th Birthday next year in February. We are planning a big celebration for our birthday, so keep you eye on diary dates for more details.

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 2015 stands at around 70 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.
