Grafton Fibrecrafts Group share stories in the weave

ONE of the best parts of the Grafton Fibrecrafts Group is the show and tell.

Members not only put on display what they have made, but the stories that go behind their creations.

Some stories are joyful, like the quilt made of patches of material collected from all over the world.

Some are tragic, like Roby Shelley's waist coat and beret entitled Over the Rainbow, made in memory of murder victim Matthew Leveson.

The group is currently making knee rugs for the Challacombe family's children, and the rugs will be made out of fleece from the late Jeremy and Sue Challacombe's alpacas.

 

Last week the group hosted the Armidale the Armidale Spinners and Weavers.

Over lunch they exchanged techniques and also the stories behind their pieces.

"The group is an outlet for my creative urges," Mrs Geaney said.

"I moved here six years ago and have met so many talented people.

"We always welcome new people."

The Grafton Fibrecrafts Group meets every second Tuesday of the month from 10am -2pm at the South Grafton Presbyterian Church.
