Due to the long weekend, our regular guest speaker and formal meeting was held on the second Monday in October. And it was definitely worth waiting for. Our guest speaker was Åsa Wahlquist on the natural dyeing of yarns. I was captivated by Åsa's presentation. The beautiful orange colours that can be achieved with ironbark leaves were amazing. I'm now intrigued to know what colour the leaves of an Angophora Costata (Sydney Red Gum) produce. Angophora's are closely related to Eucalyptus, and they are one of my favourite Sydney trees.
You can find Åsa on Ravelry - her user name is AsaW - to read more about her and see some of her work.
Hopefully I'll get some photos to put on here soon.
