The Toowoomba Royal Show went really well, with lots of wonderful entries in the Handicrafts section. Congratulations to everyone who entered and anyone who won a prize. The standard was very high.

Our Weekend Camp - Woolly Winter Weekend in June - is rapidly approaching.

Registrations have now closed for our Camp.


Club will continue every Thursday and Saturday, depending on availability of the Showgrounds. Keep a check on Diary Dates for any closures.


Our Banner this month is a handwoven cotton towel by Diane. The cotton was from Bendigo Woollen Mill.

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.
