Weaver's Interest Meeting

Weaver's Interest meetings are held on the first Friday of each month, usless otherwise notified.

At the meeting we bring along our looms and weave, as well as discuss our projects, and show what they have been creating. We also discuss problems, challenges and wins, which helps everyone, as many of the things we deal with are the same for everyone.

Check diary dates for the next meeting.

Saturday Meetings

Saturday Meetings are held every Saturday, showground events permitting. Times are the same as for Thursday meetings.

Everyone is welcome to attend, and bring along their projects to work on and have a chat.

One Saturday a month, mainly the last Saturday, we are trying to hold a workshop / demonstration / "do" day with a theme, that anyone can join in with.

Meetings:

The Toowoomba Spinners, Weavers & Dyers Group meet each Thursday and Saturday at the Homestead Building, Toowoomba Showgounds, Glenvale Road, Toowoomba, from 9:30 am. Members stay as long as they wish, with some members bringing their lunch, and staying until between 1 to 2 pm.

Visitors and new members are always welcome.

Newcomers are advised to check the Diary Dates page, as sometime there are "Whole of Grounds" events at the showgrounds and we don't have access to the homestead building. Members may meet at another location during these times.

General Meetings

These are more formal meetings that are held every two months at our Club rooms. See diary dates to check when these are on.
