Convergence is a gathering of felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme. It is four full days of immersion and indulgence in every aspect of felt making suitable for all levels of experience. Anyone interested in felt making and textiles should attend. There is no need to belong to a formal textile organisation or felting group. Just come along, learn, share, felt and have fun.

Bunbury Felting Group - 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence ABN 62663714697

The 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence was a fabulous five days in October 2011 at Bunbury Western Australia.

The Convergence may be over but we are still felting so please join us at the Bunbury Felting Group blog.

2011 Felt Convergence Fund Raising

It’s an unfortunate fact that it will take a lot of money to run the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felt Convergence.  One of the Convergence Committee’s first tasks is to start the fund raising program and to run it relentlessly right through Convergence. The more money we raise the better the Convergence will be and we have a big and exciting program in mind for you to enjoy.

Helen O’Neill of the wonderful Sals Wool Den, got the fund raising going straight away with a raffle for a big $110 worth of wool tops. Members of FeltWEST and Bunbury Felters all were eager to be a winner and bought tickets from Helen when she joined the groups at their recent meetings. Barb from Bunbury Felters was the lucky lady and we look forward to seeing some of her creations made from the prize.

Helen is now raffling two items donated by Jacqui of the Bunbury Felters group. A copy of the inspirational new book The Felted Play (Fitz Spiel) written by German felt maker Annette Quentin Stoll. It’s a quirky and fun approach to felt objects and beautifully illustrated.

The Felted Play available from Artisan Books

Plus a lovely hand dyed network felt scarf. It’s also the right size to use as a table runner during our hot summer months so can be used all the year round.

If you see Helen on her visits to the various felting and weaving groups make sure you buy a ticket. If you’d like to support her with her fund raising and would like to donate a suitable item please email us here at
