Great turnout at our meeting on Saturday. Elaine MacRae gave a very interesting talk on Krokbragd (and told us how to say it!)
And a huge thank you to all of our ASH members who generously contributed hats, mitts, scarves and shawls to our hat drive. Our donation has gone to Bryony House this year.
The Atlantic Spinners and Handweavers (ASH) was established by a group of local weavers in 1970 and provides the opportunity for weavers, spinners and dyers living in the Halifax area and beyond, to meet in a social atmosphere, to exchange information, learn new techniques and methods and share their interests.
