The Queensland Spinners, Weavers & Fibre Artists Ltd are having their annual Craft & Open Day, on Sunday the 27th of May this year.  There will be lots of demos, heaps of stalls and a fashion parade   Cool  It is all at 12 Payne Street, Auchenflower (which is reasonably handy to public transport I think) between 9:30 and 3:00.  Hope to see you all there.  I for one am looking forward to watching a spinning demo, grabbing a devonshire tea and scoring some undyed handspun yarn   Cheesy

I think there'll be some kind of handspun scrum. A handscrum? Anyway, I'm ridiculously excited to see some spinning. I told myself I wouldn't go down that path, but it's too late.

I'm (hopefully) going - I desperately want to learn to spin, but I've never seen anyone do it, so I'm hoping to see some action there! Wink

nope...not yet
have had a few invites from the different showrooms reminding me to register and letting me know what interesting things they will be showcasing....but thats about it so far.
Will be interesting to see what sort of gimmics each place has.
(one lighting company has a special prize for the first 100 people to bring in a compact fluro for them to give to charity - they will let you release a monarch butterfly)

My plan is to look at all the pretty stuff, pick up as much free shit as I can carry and maybe get a price on the Ryan table by Mark Heslop in the Queensland Design comp for my work
If I ever get to know what's going on that is!!
