Winning The Cup And Woolfest

My Handwoven Saori Styled  Black and White Shawl Wrap won

"The Marleen Upson Memorial Cup For Weaving"
at I.O.W Spinners, Weavers and Dyers Guild this year. 

Here is a photo of my winning shawl modelled with a WrightTurned Wooden Brooch & Pin set.

I so enjoyed weaving this piece as I used different weaving methods with different textures and types of yarn along with soft blends of coloured tones in plums, greys, charcoals, blacks and whites. It is rich and luxurious giving a lightness and softness to the touch.

This item along with several of my other scarves, accessories and homeware will be available to purchase at Woolfest.

Kim of The Saori Shed  will kindly be displaying and selling my saori work.
She can be found at stand H162-163.

If you are able to go to the event she will be offering an opportunity for people to weave on a saori loom and a chance to win a saori banner.
Pop along to her website and Woolfest website for more details.

Please contact me through my online shops at Folksy or Etsy by clicking on my links in the right hand column of this blog if you are interested in having an unique SWH saori weaving made especially for you or a WT brooch/pin.
Alternatively browse our shops for new pieces being added which will be ready to purchase.
