The Spinners and Weavers 43rd Camp for 2017 at Cherrabah was a “bloody good camp” according to spokeswoman Kelli Purcell.
And “the best camp ever” was the universal comment from visitors.
“That is a feather in our cap,” Kelli said.
“Crochet flowers and reverse knitting were some of the organised workshops – but if someone was sitting doing something it might create a workshop so people were spinning, weaving on looms, felting and working with bead throughout the complex, even around the pool.
“It was lovely to come to Cherrabah, it’s such a beautiful location and we did not have to worry about washing up and making beds, we just immersed ourselves in learning new and different ideas.”
Eighty participants came from as far as Maryborough, Gympie, Ipswich, Redcliffe, the Gold Coast, Warwick and Stanthorpe.
“It was so popular we now have a waiting list for the next one in 2018,” Kelli said.
The Spinners and Weavers holds only one camp a year but meets regularly at its club house in the Christian College on Horsman Road.
It is open on the first Saturday morning of the month.
“We welcome the public to try out some of the skills we have learnt,” Kelli said.
“We are delighted to share what we know with all age groups and we are always looking for the latest ideas – and our camp is so much fun while we learn new techniques.”
