We were next to the Handweavers spinners and dyers guild and the wonderful Tasmanian basket weavers. How great to see so many talented women creating .

Kerrie and I spent the day at the sustainable living fair demonstrating felting to anyone interested. We were there 4 hours and were kept busy the whole time. It was so good to see so many people interested in giving felting a go.

I spent the day at the Hobart show in the SCA (medieval ) Hall. They had the best display covering armour, costumes, dress ups foe the children and of course the sword in the stone. Not that I was able to free it. I demostrated some drop spindle spinning.
My viking son in the hand woven tunic I made him. They had demonstartion fights in both heavy armour and sword fighting, along with rapier.
Our Baroness explaining some of her fantastic lettering work.
Some members were invited to take part in the grand parade, showing off their costumes.
It is that time again when the Hobart show rolls around.
