News

Our Club is nearly back to normal, we just have all the current precautions in place due to the Corona Virus.

We have plenty of seating throughout our rooms, set at 1.5 metres apart, and hand sanitiser in strategic locations.

It is good to have everyone back, and have really enjoyed the Show & Tell, with people showing all the items they made during our lock down.

Saturday Group

The Saturday Group have decided to meet later in the day during the Winter months.

Club on Saturday will now start at 10:30 am, and continue until mid afternoon. So bring you lunch if you can stay that long.

Remember:

The most important item during these times is that if you are unwell, then don't attend.

 

A decision on Our Camp which was postponed from 5,6 & 7 June 20, is still to come.

Keep your eyes on this page, and we will let you know more details as they come to hand.

Take care of yourselves, and we hope to see you soon.

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.
