As well as knowledgeable members in the crafts of spinning and weaving who are willing to share their expertise, the club has an excellent library, and equipment for hire. Classes occur from time to time, and speakers attend the monthly meetings.
Visitors are very welcome. Open to anyone, beginners and experienced who are interested in the crafts of spinning fibre to yarn, including paper, flax or other. Knitting, crochet, weaving, dyeing, braiding and shibori. A friendly supportive group, we welcome new members young and old.
We also have an enthusiastic Weaving Group which meets monthly in the St Luke’s Church Hall. We have a yearly program covering fibre-related subjects of interest to members and we aim to help our members with any problems which arise and stimulate their interest in our craft with sharing of ideas in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Visitors are welcome.
This group is one of four which own and run the Creative Arts Centre in Balclutha. They run exhibitions, work days, craft crawls, and fashion parades to promote their members’ work. Workshops in the different fibre disciplines are held each year.
