The Gore Spinners and Weavers Club is holding a scarf competition, in the hope it will inspire people to rediscover the joys of working with wool or other fabrics.
There are two sections - woollen and an open class, and both have children's and adult sections.
The woollen class is simple, a scarf made from wool. However, there are plenty of ways to turn that wool into a scarf, from felting to crochet, knitting to weaving. Embellishments such as sequins are encouraged but should make up just 10 per cent of the finished product.
The open section is open to interpretation and the scarf can be made from absolutely anything. The competition is judged on its uniqueness, eye appeal, technique and use of colour.
Gore Spinners and Weavers Club president Biddy Kerr hoped the competition would catch the attention of younger people so the skills were not lost.
‘‘We are encouraging school children to enter, either as individuals or as a class.
‘‘Spinners and Weavers is not just about spinning,'' Mrs Kerr said.
‘‘Anyone can come along and knit or crochet or learn new skill.'' - Entries close on April 29 and will be taken at the Baptist Church Hall between 10am and 4pm. Any inquiries should be made to Biddy Kerr on (03) 208-6562 or Karen Kingsbury on (03) 208-6433.
