We meet on Tuesdays 10.00am – 2.00pm for general activities, spinning, knitting, dyeing (sometimes) and general chit chat, in our own club rooms situated just outside of Foxton township. Once a month, on the third Thursday, we try to have a weaving day where we work on our own projects or maybe a club project. We also have a small felting group that meets on Wednesdays at 10.00am.
