DIARY DATES

 

Another busy year has passed and it's time to start Christmas shopping, so why not give your family or friends a Glenora Weaving Gift Voucher so they can enjoy selecting the perfect textile gift for themselves? The vouchers are available for any value over $25.00 and will be posted with an attractive Christmas card. 

 

Bob and I have just returned from driving to Bright in Victoria, where we met with refugees from Myanmar (Burma) who are planning to establish a weaving group to create their traditional Chin fabrics. The Berry Spinners and Weavers have donated several table and inkle looms plus books, while Glenora Weaving gifted the reeds, equipment and yarns to help these enthusiastic young women get started. It was a pleasure to meet them and we wish them every success with their project.

 

Now for some exciting news! Richard and Elizabeth Ashford from Ashford Handicrafts in New Zealand have announced a new Annual Award available to textile artists! This award is open to individuals or groups and the winner/s will receive $5000 worth of Ashford products. Check out this link for more details: www.ashford.co.nz/Award.

 

Glenora Weaving and Wool are planning a road trip up the North Coast of NSW next March to attend a textile camp at Stuarts Point and we are hoping to also visit some of the Spinning and Weaving groups along the way. Our trailer will be full of fibres, yarns, equipment, books, dyes, accessories and specials, so if any members are interested in participating please contact us so that we can plan a visit.

 

Just remember, we will be closed for our annual holidays from Friday 22nd December to Wednesday 3rd January. We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their support and friendship and wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a relaxing New Year!

 

Christine, Bob, Janine and Jane.
