Another great year at TWIST.  A few thousand people came to enjoy the numerous classes, activities like Wool-lympics and sheep sheering and herding and to leave with bags full of wonderful yarns, rovings, fibres and hmmm, a few rughooking and punching items! The show is spread over 3 days which made manoeuvring and shopping and viewing easy for everyone.

Because of our hotel fiasco, we were located 20 minutes away and since breakfast only started at 8!!! and the show started at 9!!! (and I am not one to miss a free meal 🙂 ) I had very little time to take pictures. And I have to admit – they are not the greatest because I had to use the iPad – iPhone decided last week that it had had enough and the camera has gone wobbly. No fix seems to be available and since ours is 4 (yes FOUR!) YEARS OLD and beyond the life expectancy of current technology, I guess a new Iphone is in our future!!!… But I did manage to get a few pictures of my students hard at work… 

and some of the wonderful fibres at the show…

And now, a few finished pieces by friends:

Jill finished her fun Karla Gerard – In the Garden – I wish you could see the fabulous buttons (chickens and flowers) that she added in the gardens:

Diane finished both her mittens:

Daniele punched these amazing pieces based on the artwork of her kids:

And Sheila’s rug for her very lucky grandbaby with all his favourite things:
