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.
