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.

Traders Hall Update - New Trader - Auzzie Kid Mohair

We think it is really important to get distinctive textures in our felting by experimenting with lots of different fibres so we are really excited to welcome Auzzie Kid Mohair to our Traders Hall.

Auzzie Kid Mohair began at Llewta Mohair Farm back in 1988 in gorgeous Gidgegannup, just 50 kilometres east of Perth. It's run by husband and wife team Margaret and Garry Atwell who have been breeding Angora goats for many years and want to share their experience with the outstanding qualities of the natural fibre.

Mohair’s unique fibre offers tremendous lustre and glamour in colour. Its luxurious silky texture gives resilience and is very warm without being heavy. 

Pop over to their website by clicking here to see their range which includes yarns and garments including coats, capes, tops along with a range of hand knitted hats, scarves and mohair for doll making. They also sell some rather beautiful shawl pins which will really add a finishing touch to our creations.

We are looking forward to visiting her stall in the Traders Hall at the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence Bunbury October 2011. In the meantime, we have added them to our Traders Hall section on the right hand side of this blog so you can visit them on line any time you like. And of course if you are in the area you can visit them in person and see all those angoras that Gary and Margaret breed.
