the last of the summer wine

Aye, it felt a bit like the last of summer wine today when in persisting rain at Penicuik House Tom from Scotish Lime and Fiona from Galgael packed the tall frame loom and the stonefelt portal in the van to go back to Glasgow. The loom will actually go to Campbeltown next week for an ABREEF event with Laryna and Fiona!
 It felt as if the made in Govan Felt Portal had deserved more 'showing off' space in Penicuik, it was such as hassle getting it over here and even more so getting it back!
Well, at least we have its memory now here, combined with the remembering of the sunshine and fun time at the 3 days fibre craft fun this Indian summer in September 2010.

Which reminds me: we have not posted the feedback back to you from what you said about the Saturday Family Fibre fun day on the 4th Sept.

Here are now some of your written words:

I never worked with felt before and had no idea how satisfying it is. Thank you so much for the experience! It would be great if this kind of free event was more available for more people.

Brilliant few hours - had a ball! Thanks

thought event was good and interesting. Any event that lets people get involved with crafts is good.

very friendly event, great afternoon out for the children

the time. effort and patience given to the children during this event has made it a very enjoyable experience

I found it all very interesting and my grandson (from Africa) enjoyed making a heart for his mother

we had a wonderful day playing with felt. My daughter and I truly enjoyed it. It has inspired me to do some more at home.

Nice and enjoyable afternoon. Children loved the hands on and adults felt relaxed and were enjoying themselves.

A lovely event in a great location. My daughter had enjoyed it very much.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I am now hooked on felting

very interesting and relaxing. Entertaining children and adults.

a very enjoyable and entertaining experience. The ladies running the workshops were very friendly, patient and knowledgable . Thank you

I liked spinning - it was fun. I liked the felting balls, it was fun. Very interesting and enjoyable. I like it.

Thank you for your apprecation ;-)
Hope to see you all again as we create free crafts in the community because you like and because we know how important it is today that people get together to craft and explore it more at home. Fibre craft in particular teaches all ages and stages respect and care for the community of life in very many fun ways.

Come and share your fun, its our fun. And it gives you more and more skills to share.
Make space for your and our Making Space.
