Film Viewing 17th May 2012

Our newest GOLDS member Peter Hoare, from Ireland, has kindly offered to show us two vintage spinning films made in the 1980s. Peter is visiting Northamptonshire this week, has had the videos converted to DVD. In partnership with the Spinning School Pam and I are arranging a viewing of these films on Thursday17th May, 7-9pm at Stoke Albany Hall.

We are going to make a small charge of £2 to cover the hire of the Hall but we will have tea and cake available too.

This is an impromptu event and a nice opportunity too

Hope you can come

Celebration of Spinning 2010 - 6th November

What a great day we had yesterday. The supply of cake , lovely sandwiches and goodies to eat lived up to our reputation. I would like to say a BIG thank you to all the members that made to day happen - so smoothly and relaxed. We had a total of 19 visitor - just the right number to allow everyone to join in the workshops, eat, and chat. Most spent the whole day with us and some came to stay for the morning or afternoon.

Next meeting 5 September 09

Just a reminder that the topic for the next meeting is "Dyeing using natural dyestuffs".

I know that Rosalind has been brewing and concocting from garden and hedgerow finds so we need to bring some undyed white wool to have a play.

Hope to see you all there.

There are still many mysteries!

Have just spent another morning playing around with HTML coding. I think the minutes now look a bit prettier and slightly easier to read. I am still not totally happy with the way they are appearing nor the fact that they are appearing as a forum topic. But hey - at least they are there. I will continue to work on improving them though. In the meantime, I have tucked them away at the bottom of the page so that you don't have to wade through them all to get to the next forum.

I certainly think we must try and increase the size of the font or we may all be needing new glasses.

More Progress??

I have made some more changes and moved all minutes etc that I entered yesterday to a new page on Discussion Forums and have added some other topics and changed a few more. Things are definately looking up.


Oh dear when I entered them as blogs they were fine but now they are ... and I need to do some more editing !!


As you can see, I have managed to update some info onto the site. Unfortunately, it hasn't come out in the right order but at least the info is there and going forward the latest entry will come at the top of the list.

Thanks to Janet for letting me use her password. It seems to be the only one that works. I absolve her of all blame for any errors because they will all be mine!

I now need to master pictures and forms - ugh!
