April Open Day at Strathpeffer

About 20 people enjoyed the April Open Day, most spinning either with wheels or spindles. One newish member was being taught to spin by Sue R.

Another, taught by Sue V at Dornoch, was doing impressively well with a spindle.

Sadie had offered to help anyone with queries about tapestry, and had set up four small looms. Several people had a go during the day. Sadie herself was weaving a sample echoing the marks on a stone.

Linda had also brought along the landscape tapestry she is working on.

And the sheep were there with their field – two more than at Dornoch!

Longstanding members of the Guild were remembering Serena Mason, and there was a minute’s silence for her at the beginning of the EGM, which took place in the middle of the day.

Following the election of Linda as Chair and Sue R as Treasurer, Sadie outlined the workshop programme she is working on – a lot of things to look forward to there! Our May Open Day will be at Dundreggan Rewilding Centre, near Fort Augustus.
