Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre Artists celebrate 40 years!
Congratulations to groups in Australia celebrating birthday milestones! The Kureelpa Spinners and Weavers Group turned thirty last May, and the Swan Valley Spinning Group gained adult status when it turned twenty-one. The Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre ArtistsLtd. celebrated forty years in October with a High Afternoon Tea with new, founding, and current members in attendance. The group's Open Day included a fashion parade of clothing created over the past year, a secondhand book stall of art and craft books, plant and food booths, and a new fund-raising stall called "Think Pink" with the goal of raising money for cancer research and support. Donations of pink scarves and other handspun, handknitted, or woven items were collected at meetings for sale in the booth.
