More from August

Lovely to see Kim wearing another of her felt scarves.

We particularly love the heart detail.

Seems there's a bit of a theme developing.

Heart felt indeed.

August Meeting

Many thanks to Val for demonstrating Cobweb Felt.  We look forward to seeing everyone's finished pieces at next months meeting.

Thanks also to everyone who brought in their creations for this months Show and Talk.  In this blog post we are showing the beautiful scarves made (and grown) by Maureen.

Simple white embellished with pastel coloured silks.

The alpaca wool is incredibly soft.

If you like alpaca, keep checking in to the Felt Convergence Blog for a future post about these gorgeous creatures and their lovely soft wool!

Our Exhibition is Open

A big round of applause for everyone who has helped make our first exhibition of felt a resounding success.

The opening at 2.00pm was well attended and Kerry had organised a special celebration cake  for the occasion.

Councillor Judy Jones of the City of Bunbury  officially opened the exhibition and gave a speech in which she gave credit to the amazing creativity of the Bunbury Felters.  She also said  how she was looking forward to October 2011 when Bunbury would become a world centre for felt when the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence will be held here.

Many thanks to everyone who lent a hand in putting the exhibition together and especially Kerry seen below surrounded by chairs and wearing felt of course.

The exhibition  really looks fabulous, so if you haven't been yet,  gather your family and friends and Take a Seat down at Cafe Fez.
