Black & Coloured Sheep Festival @ Robertson 5.4.2014


The Illawarra Feltmakers Inc have again been invited to be part of the Black & Coloured Sheep Breeders Annual Wool Festival. This is taking place on Saturday 5th April 2014 at the Robertson School of Arts Hall Illawarra Highway, Robertson.
It opens at 10.00 am and doors close at 2.30pm. Entry is free and tea and coffee etc will be available
 
As this date clashes with our first meeting day for the month of April, it has been decided that there will be no group meeting at ShellCove on the 5th April.
 
Instead, we hope you can join us at Robertson where we will be doing the usual felt ball making demonstrations and assisting with the fashion parade and generally doing our bit to help promote wool and its great uses.

A wonderful showcase our work will be available to view or buy.

This is a chance to purchase fleece, wool and woollen products as well as spinning and weaving supplies. There will also be the opportunity to join in the speed knitting competitions and view demonstrations.
