Winter fest: Wingham spinners and weavers

WINGHAM Spinners and Weavers will be the special guest of Taree Craft Centre during its two 'Fantastic Fibres' Exhibitions held during the Manning Winter Festival.

The first exhibition will open at the group's Taree North craft outlet, next to the Taree Visitors Information Centre at 10am on Saturday June 14 and run through to Sunday June 29.

The second exhibition will be held at the group's Taree Craft Cottage, corner High and Pulteney Streets, Taree from 9.30am Thursday June 26 through to Saturday June 28.

"We are so excited about having the Wingham Spinners and Weavers participate in our two exhibitions," said publicity officer Elaine Dutch.

"The quality of their work is outstanding and their ability to create beautiful hand knits from hand spun yarn and fashionable hats, bags, scarves and wraps from colourful hand felted fibres is stunning.

"Visitors to our exhibitions are in for a real treat, as they will be able to watch demonstrations of both felting and spinning and browse a fabulous display of hand finished items.

"In addition, Taree Craft Centre members will display a variety of handcrafts, such as; the popular knitted slouchy hats and other warm knitted and crocheted wearables created in the latest yarns, cosy mug hugs, traditional tea cosies, gorgeous babywear, colourful beanies for older children and unique hand knitted toys which are sure to become a treasured keepsake.

"All in all, there is something different for everyone at both of the exhibitions, so come along and enjoy them!"
