DIARY DATES  

 

My favorite season has arrived, the weather is cooler with fine days and crisp nights, and I’m inspired to forage in my wool stash to start planning the winter projects! This is also the busiest season for Glenora Weaving & Wool as we travel to our trading venues, so please check out the diary dates below and visit our stand to take advantage of the show specials.
 
We will be trading at Contextart from the 8-11 April at Hazelbrook in the Blue Mountains. This exciting textile event features two and three day workshops with excellent tutors, a trading hall open to everyone, art installations and exhibitions.
 
The cool mountain air and beautiful autumn colours are an added bonus to a very enjoyable time. For more information contact Vanessa at www.contextart.com.au.
 
News flash! The Celebration of Wool Day in Canberra is now being held for two days, May 20-21 at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston! This is a wonderful event for all textile and wool addicts with dozens of unique stalls, demonstrations and entertainment as well as great food, it’s not to be missed! Glenora Weaving and Wool will be trading for both days, so come and enjoy browsing our colourful display and grab some great fibre and yarn bargains.
 
Glenora Weaving often receive lovely photos sent by our customers of their projects and so we have decided to add a Gallery page to our popular website. If you have recently created an interesting textile using our products and are happy to share it with everyone, please email us a photo with any information re the yarns, fibre or pattern used, I’m sure that it will inspire us all.
 
We are listing new customers daily via our website and on-line shop but please remember that we also welcome personal visits to our business and attractive display area and are very happy to assist with any textile queries!
