Magazines:

The Club subscribes to quite a few magazines, including:

Handwoven Magazine;

Spin Off Magazine

The Wheel Magazine

Felt Magazine

The Australian Knitters Magazine.

These magazines can be borrowed by Club members, and are a great resource and provide wonderful inspiration to both the novice and the experienced.

The latest Handwoven and Spin Off Magazines are now available for loan.

 

eggs

Above are some Easter eggs, that were hand dyed at Club using pieces of silk ties, then boiled. The results were very interesting, however the fact that the eggs were brown, not white, made some of the results not as spectacular as they could have been.

 

Library

The Club Library carried a huge range of books and all our crafts, plus many other crafts as well.

The books cover topics on all our main crafts of knitting, crocheting, dyeing, felting, weaving and spinning. We also receive copies of Handwoven and Spin Off magazines, and have just subscribed to the New Zealand Magazine - Creative Fibre, which has lots of wonderful articles and information. We also purchase new books at regular intervals, usually at the request of members, who have seen a book and believe it would be a great addition to our library.

Equipment

The Club has a wide range of Equipment, from spinning wheels, looms and all the equipment associated with spinning, weaving etc. The equipment is available for members to hire out or just for use at the club. The hire fee is very reasonable, and is mainly to assist to replace items as they wear out.

Librarians

Our Librarian is Ros D., and she is looking forward to help you get the books you need for any project.

Review

The library has a book called Color in Spinning by Deb Menz. This book discusses colour in spinning, by blending colours while carding, and especially how to keep colours clear and not muddy. She also discusses dyeing and painting fibre and rovings, together with spinning and plying multi coloured fibre.

A great book with lots of information and photos. a great source for upcoming spinners.

There are plenty of books in the library on knitting, from beginners to advanced and everything in between.
