The photo shows our clothesline with tea towels. We started with a lot more of them but by the time the photo was taken many had gone to new homes.
An outdoor display of weaving can be difficult to put together on a hot summer day. Many of our guild members work in wool, especially those that spin their own yarn. In the heat of the summer wool garments or blankets are not very appealing no matter how lovely they may be. We have to depend upon items made from cotton, linen, silk or synthetic threads to demonstrate the range of weaving styles and techniques.

We were soon busy as the crowds finished their grocery shopping and headed our way.

The spinners were set up at the front of the booth at least until a few drops of rain started to fall but we were lucky in that the blacker clouds floated on past us.
