About Us

 

WE MEET 9-1pm TUESDAYS AT THE SALVATION ARMY HALL, 

128 Station St, Bonnells Bay 2264

P.O. BOX 186 MORISSET 2264

Morisset Spinners and Weavers is a group of about 50 people from all walks of life who meet weekly to share our interest in textile related activities. We learn from each other, hold regular workshops to increase our knowledge, and generally have a good time.
Most of us spin and or weave, but we also do felting, knitting, crochet, basketry, tapestry and dyeing.
We run regular workshops of interest to our members, and are always willing to teach new members our varied crafts. It doesn't matter if you are young or old, male or female, or are caring for your preschoolers you will be made welcome.

Membership is $35 a year, and each week we attend we pay $5 to cover hall hire and morning tea, and a small donation to our building fund.
