Woolcraft@Galgael on the Riverside Regatta, 16th of July 2011

Heather's display of plant dyed, handspun wool
Woolcraft@GalGael had a stall in GalGael's huge marquee. It was a new event related to the former Riverfest but in a new venue, on the northern side of the river Clyde, just beside the new Riverside Museum.  
The weather was okay and we had crowds of people visiting the woodcraft and woolcraft stalls from Galgael. It's always great to meet new people, who haven't heard about GalGael. Heather and Jaene were spinning on their spinning wheels and the kids could have a shot on the wheels. Proud little faces! Then and now Heather was singing a gaelic spinning song and received standing ovations. Lots of pics were taken.
Jenny did a bit of needle felting and sold Galgaels newly produced CD! Laryna was weaving on the rug loom and a couple of kids had a go in rug weaving. 
We all enjoyed a fantastic day!  
if you couldn't make it this year, we hope to see you there next summer!
