We're all met together here to sit and to clack With our glasses in our hands and our work upon our back There's nae a trade among 'em who could mend or could knack If it wasna for the Work O' the Weavers
If it wasna for the weavers wha' would ya do? Ya wouldna hae no cloth tha's made o' wool. Ya wouldna hae no greens, nor your greys, nor your blues If it wasna for the work o' the weavers.
welcome the Hebridean fleeces home
November 2007 - we welcome home the Hebridean fleeces - as this rare breed has been extinct from the Isles and is now coming back; with big thank you, from all at the Galgael. to John from Iona and his dark happy girls there
Spring Equinox and Good Friday today and Flora wrote
A very belated note of what we did at the Woolcraft group last Friday.Verene, Laryna and I were there and we worked on preparing the two Hebridean fleeces – sewing the gaps etc.Verene had to go home to get some sewing needles and I had not brought my needle felting bits and pieces so we thought perhaps we need to get some equipment which can be left in the bothy?
We had a lovely lunch with lots of children around, including Helen’s wee baby, and some music and song.
All the best
And I hear there was also Heather there.
Plus there was re-dedicating of values via cards Gehan had made with values written on them, whch people could pick, either as pot luck, or by carefully choosing them: respect, loyalty, were just two of many.
It was a very special Galgael day... I was very sorry to have had to miss it.
