Don’t forget to look at the newsletters, which we receive from local textile organisations, and also from America and New Zealand. They have news of exhibitions, book reviews and Creative Fibre, which is from the New Zealand Spinning, Weaving and Woolcrafts Society, has interesting colour photos of work as well.
I was surprised to see the Tasmanian Guild welcoming a whole page of new members, perhaps they had an open day as well!
We bought five new books from Anne Miller on Open Day: Domino Knitting by Vivian Hoxbro, An Australian Afghan by the Kurringai Branch of the Knitters Guild.
Color Works: The Crafter’s Guide to Color by Deb Menz, Men in Knits: Sweaters to Knit That He Will Wear by Tara Jon Manning, also The Best of Weaver’s: Thick ‘n Thin by Madelyn Van Der Hoogt.
We will have lots of second-hand books and magazines for sale. If you are unsure how much it is to borrow a book after all our changes, it is now 30 cents per book per month — Patricia Buick
