Weaving Group Ocean View

I am looking forward to a new year of weaving with our group at Ocean View. We learn so much from each other and it really helps to spark ideas off others. Our first day for weaving for the year will be Saturday 1st February. All welcome at the Coast Community Church, Ocean View, Dunedin at 10am to 4pm. $3. Bring your own lunch. New people very welcome. Come to see what we get up to. The cost for a beginners pack is $35, this includes all things you need to make a sample korowai and an instruction booklet. 
We meet on the first Saturday of the month and the first and third Tuesday (from 9 to 12:30). This year we may also start a group at the University in Dunedin. Anyone interested please let me know. 

I am also looking for korowai teaching opportunities anywhere in the South Island. Two or three day workshops are the usual arrangement but we can work something out for schools.  I am happy just to have my travelling expenses and materials covered. So think about getting a group of 10 people together who want to learn to make their own korowai for their whanau.

There have been no posts over Christmas because there has been no weaving going on. But even with lots of visitors my fingers have been keeping nimble with crocheting amigurumi characters for grandchildren. I must admit to looking forward to February and weaving again. 
With the latest lot of family it has been Star Wars characters and I will again have to go to town for more wool. This is getting beyond a joke. 
Octonauts for my grandson in Sydney. 
Some of the figures. 
Princess Leia, a jawa and R2D2. Darth Vada and Luke are underway but lacking wool. 
Roll on February.
