Thank you to those who have returned any library items but there are still a few outstanding - please return them this Saturday or contact us. This is holding up the implementation of the new system. Speaking of the new system a great big huge mega thank you to Vimol who has been working tirelessly to get our new online system prepared. As you can imagine it has been a lot of work cross checking the old paper catalogue, photographing and then creating the new system. Big hug for Vimol from all of us. With a bit of luck the library will be open for business for Toss n Tell next year.

Christmas Bazaar

The committee has been working on the finalising of our Bazaar - ensuring we are COVID compliant and have one last item to assess - have you got felt to sell? We would just like an indication of what you have planned to submit for sale - it doesn't mean it has to be made already - just what you have or plan to make. If you could click this link below and indicate the numbers that would be fantastic. Or of course - email me feltwest.president@gmail.com or let one of the committee know. Once we have an idea all of the details, costs (which will be very low), procedures and actions will be published very very soon.

Planning Day

We are having our yearly planning day on October 25th - if you have any suggestions for workshops, demos, charity event or project email me or let one of the committee members know. feltwest.president@gmail.com

That's all for now - bring along anything you have made to share at Toss n Tell - we love to see the variety of wonderful felty things you all make. And bring your gear to have a go after the demo.

See you Saturday
