This year, the FOURTH ANNUAL WAKKERSTROOM NATURAL FIBRE HANDCRAFT FAIR will be held on SATURDAY 24th MARCH 2012 in the Wakkerstroom NG Church Hall from 9.00 a.m. - 2.00 p.m.
There will be weaving, spinning, embroidery, lace making, quilting, creative knitting, felting and much more on display with many vendors selling their natural fibre wares. Delicious homemade refreshments will be available as well as secure parking. (Entrance fee: R5.00)
For workshop requirements and bookings please phone the appropriate teacher. Numbers are limited per workshop – so PLEASE book early.
Freestyle, freeform, crazy, wild – the no rules, do as you please kind of knitting and crochet that uses up all your little bits and makes use of all sorts of other fibre techniques to create one of a kind, never to be repeated works of art. All you need are knitting needles, a crochet hook, a darning needle, all sorts of yarn and your imagination.
English Paper piecing is a time honoured technique dating back to at least 1813. It’s a wonderful simple method for constructing intricate quilts with lots of perfectly matched points.
Hope to see you there.
