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.

Welcoming Bilby Yarns to our Traders Hall

We are very pleased to welcome West Australian business Bilby Yarns to our Traders Hall. 

Bilby Yarns is an interesting business and if you visit their website by clicking on the link in our Traders Hall area of the right hand side bar, you will see that they take wool very seriously indeed. 

They  specialise in naturally coloured West Australian wool fleece, tops and yarns.  They like undyed chemical free products that are eco friendly.  

If you want colour, then they have a natural dye range produced from Western Australian plants, so if you want to do some organic dying without getting your legs all scratched then this is the place to visit.   (We really love the emphasis on the West Australian product).

They also sell supplies for spinning, weaving, knitting and felt making including both new and secondhand equipment, and stock other fibres, dyes, kits, magazines, cottons and tapestry yarns. 

If you are in the Perth area you can visit  their showroom at the corner of Harrison Street and Hillary Street, Willagee, Western Australia.  Their opening hours are between 11:00am – 4:30pm Tuesday to Friday and appointments can be made for visits out of these hours and Saturday.

And remember, when you are busy packing for the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence in October and your bags are straining at the seams, Bilby Yarns will be here. Our Traders Hall will be open every day for all those felting and textile goodies that you need to enjoy an exciting felting experience.
