Wool Group Yarning – June 2020

Due to lock down we haven’t been meeting at the Multi Purpose building as usual, but we have managed to keep in contact via Face book; hopefully it won’t be too much longer before we can get back to our normal meetings. Nevertheless we have all been busy getting on with our projects: after a…

Wool Group Yarning – March 2020

Our Wool Group members and a few lucky husbands finished off 2019 with a lovely lunch at the Traralgon Winery which we all enjoyed and we were looked after very nicely by the staff. After a short break we resumed our weekly get-togethers in mid January. Lori has been very quick off the mark with…

Boolarra Wool Group Yarning – Dec. 2019

Recently twelve members of the Traralgon Spinners joined us for a social get-together. We had a very pleasant day sharing our craft and chatting about our various projects. Meryl was very happy to model her ‘work in progress’ scarf which she’s knitting from tea bag strings. She collects the strings and ties them together then…

Carla stopped off at the Bendigo Sheep and Wool show on…

Boolarra Wool Group Report – Sep, 2011

Wool Group June 2011

In early April a group of us enjoyed a most pleasant and relaxing day out at the Nickleby at Darnum Alpaca Farm.  It was decided unanimously to stop off at Yarragon on the way, to peruse our favourite shops.  We spent a couple of hours trying on ‘this and that’ in various stores and some…

Wool Group – March. 2011

We have been back to our regular meetings for 7 weeks now, refreshed and ready for another social and productive year.  Hopefully we’ll come up with some very exciting group projects again like the teddy bear making that we all enjoyed so much.  I know there are quite a few of us who would like…

Over the past few months our member numbers have increased, hence we are very pleased to welcome our new ladies – Lyn, Maryanne, Pam, Kay and Anna. We hope they enjoy many happy days with us in years to come. Early in winter many of us were involved in knitting socks on a circular needle….
