Happy 50th Anniversary!

The Hand Weavers’, Spinners’ and Dyers’ Guild of Western Australia celebrates it’s 50th Anniversary this year. To help celebrate this amazing mile stone, a fantastic luncheon was held at the Alexander Park Craft House, Menora. There was a great turn out of past and present guild members and some partners and it was lovely to meet and have a yarn (pardon the pun) with friends complete with superb food and music entertainment to wrap up the afternoon.

This year three members were presented with the honorary ‘Life Member’ award. Marie Wynne, Rosemary Skinner and our President, Jean Leary were all very surprised when their names were announced! They are all well deserving individuals of their new titles and I would like to congratulate them on achieving this wonder honor.

Well done ladies!
