Black & Coloured Sheep Festival @ Robertson 2.5.2015 & Tallong Apple Festival 3.5.2015

Black & Coloured Sheep Festival @ Robertson  2.5.2015

The Illawarra Feltmakers Inc  will be part of the Black & Coloured Sheep Breeders Annual Wool Festival. This is taking place on Saturday 2nd May 2015 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 May, it has been decided that there will be no group meeting at ShellCove on the 2nd May 2015.
 
Instead, we hope you can join us at Robertson.
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. 
 
Its your opportunity to join in the woolly experience.
 
 
Tallong Apple Festival Sunday 3rd May
We look forward to seeing you  at Tallong Apple Festival, Sunday 3 May -  


We will be making felt apples & balls.


Fleece to Garment Challenge
Felt Makers: We will ask you to make an adult size French beret.  We hope you have lots of fun and I am confident you will produce a beautiful beret!

We will have a trophy for the spinners/knitters and another trophy for felt makers, plus some small prizes for participants.

There will be yarns & fibre for sale , and felted items at both felt makers stalls. Others will demonstrate weaving, knitting from the fleece and lace making, plus a quilting display. We hope it will be a pleasant and fun day for all.
