An invitation to all felt & fibre friends

I am putting the wheels in motion to start a tea/coffee morning for any fibre loving folks - spinners/felters/weavers and those who are interested in fibre arts & crafts. 

I dont have a group name or permenant venue as yet.  I propose either every other Friday, or 1 Friday a month to meet up for an hour or 2, the idea is to bring along something to work on while we chat over tea & biscuits.

This will be in Halesowen, West Midlands, UK.  Possibly the first meet up could be as soon as Friday 4th March (am)   If you are interested please leave me a comment, or email me through one of my shops or flickr (links to the right).

Ultimately, if there are enough people interested we could use a room at Haden Hill House.. but as I would need to hire the room we would need at least 7 people for this (with approx £1 sub)

This is a chance to get out and meet people who share a love of fibre, no concentrating on learning a new skill as you do at a workshop - just relax and make friends. 

Dont be shy

That is just such a great idea, but unfortunately I don't live near enough, a bit like a 'stitch and bitch'.
much love

Hello Deborah :) I'm so very glad to have found this post! I met you briefly at Hartlebury Castle, when I bought a wet-felting kit from you, just before Christmas. I am absolutely hooked already and have been just waiting for this very post. I've been teaching myself, using every tutorial I can find on the web and absolutely relish the prospect of meeting with and learning from yourself and as many like-minded others as poss. Please count me in!

Thanks so much for having this idea :)
