Our first face to face meeting for two years – how lovely it was to meet up again! There were 30 plus members present, spread around the outside of the big hall at Strathpeffer Community Centre, mostly with spinning wheels, though Ruth had brought a marudai and was weaving a kumihimo braid, and Susan was using a drop spindle. The room is airy, with a high ceiling, and the front doors of the centre were open, so it felt safe, and we wore masks when moving around. There was a lot of chat! Not everyone had remembered to bring their challenge scarf, but we had a very impressive array, which we displayed on the wallbars. As ever the end results were as varied, individual and creative as our members! They included a shawl knitted from the winning thread of one of the Bothwell longest thread competitions, and gifted to one of our members. Denise had brought the runner she has created from inkle bands. Michelle had brought examples of her dyeing. As a special treat we had cake too!
