So there we are, 2011 in no more than half a dozen posts. I must make an effort to keep this blog more up to date in future, but it's amazing how time runs away with you when you're having fun!

The below posts were just some of the highlights of course.

I've been surprised by the popularity of the spinning and felting workshops at Amber Valley Alpacas, it's been a pleasure to meet and teach so many enthusiastic, creative people. We are now trialling beginners knitting and crochet days and are looking into other crafts and skills.

The Black Sheep meetings are still going incredibly well. Our 2nd birthday party in November was attended by around 30 people and we keep getting new faces ( who normally end up becoming regulars) popping in all the time.

The Arkwright Spinsters group went through a period of change recently but as a result, our meetings on the 3rd Sunday of every month are so happy, friendly and welcoming and it's clear that everyone really enjoys attending.

Both groups are open to all, whether experienced spinners, beginners or interested observers. For more information, see below or feel free to contact me. 

Black Sheep Spinners, meet 3rd Wednesday of every month, 1pm  - 4.30pm at Blaze Farm, Wildboarclough, SK11 0BL

The Arkwright Spinsters, meet 3rd Sunday of every month, 11am - 4pm  in the Gothic Wharf building, Cromford Mill, DE4 3RQ
