Melinda & Eleanor do felt demos at the Easter Show



Some of our members had exhibits at the easter show.
The results for the 2012 Royal Easter Show has great excitement for two of our members. Melinda Binkins has received six awards for her felted entries - three 1st prizes, two second prizes and Winner of Best Exhibition - Felting Classes. 





Also Barbara Wyles has received recognition for her knitting and spinning by being awarded two 1st prizes, a third and two Highly Commendeds. 




Great news and so well deserved.
