|Window 1 - Information about Shapinsay and a live exhibit|
A few of us spent some time in the larger window demonstrating our craft. Pat the artist painted, Louise did some needle felting and I did some spinning, others also contributed to the display. It could get a bit hot in the window and we weren't in there all the time. It was a fun experience though and we certainly got the attention of people walking past
The second window was the window of the shop area.

Some of our goods have been taken down to Tomb of the Eagles to be displayed on a 'Made in Shapinsay' shelf in their shop. Exciting times.
At the suggestion of a friend I have been experimenting with the brooches I make from felted jumpers. Instead of sewing on a brooch clip I have threaded them through a coloured wire. I bought some different coloured wires from Bead Pop in Aberdeen. I am happy with the end result as they sit quite nicely. More fun to be had with this idea I think.
I still have earrings in mind so watch this space.
