Market Time Again

It's time for another Market Day at Sussex Neighbourhood House. This one has a "sustainability" theme. I get a headstart on green credentials since my hand-spinning is always human-powered using locally sourced natural materials. To add to the fun I'm preparing a kids craft activity. Remember the CD drop spindle? It's a couple of years since I made it, but it still works well.

I'll be demonstrating spinning on a drop spindle and have kits available to make your own, complete with easy-to-use wool tops. Plus there'll be beautiful work available for sale from a range of locally-connected artisans. Here are the details:

Sussex Neighbourhood House
corner Sussex and Rising St, North Coburg
11 am to 3 pm on Sunday 11 September

Please come and say hello if you're in the area.

I think my granddaughter (1) would like to play with one of these - the other day I found her in her dad's study surrounded by open CD"s and her dad saying that it didn't matter because they are all backed up on the computer. So spinning, here we come :)
