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.

Traders Hall Update - The Snowy Creek Roller Felting Machine

For those of you who read our last post and don't have access to a horse or an AFL football team to help with your rolling you will be relieved to read that Paul and Christine Harrison developed their Roller Felting Machine especially for us felters.

The Harrison's started their company Snowy Creek Engineering about 15 years ago when they escaped from Melbourne city life and bought acreage in country Victoria at Snowy Creek.  They started breeding Alpacas and got interested in felting.  Paul, with his engineering background, looked at ways of mechanising the felting process and after consulting with other felters he created his prototype felting machine.

From there the Snowy Creek Roller Felting Machine was developed, a wonderful piece of equipment that will tackle both small and large felting projects without the tiring work of hand rolling but with the same beautiful results that are achieved by experienced felters.

It sounds just what we need so click here to read all about it.   

Snowy Creek Engineering also create and sell needle felting equipment and are very kindly donating a needle felting kit as a door prize at the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence Bunbury 2011.

We hope they will be able to make it over here in October 2011 and join us in our Traders Hall.
