Welcome to Creative Fibre Wellington. We bring together a talented group of people who are passionate about all facets of fibrecrafts. We love to knit, spin, weave, felt, crochet and dye with a wide range of natural fibres – from wool to silk, alpaca to harakeke. We share ideas and skills, learn from other, and most of all, enjoy each other’s company. We are affiliated to Creative Fibre – the New Zealand Spinning, Weaving and Woolcrafts Society Inc.
At our 2019 festival, to be held 25–28 April in Palmerston North, we will celebrate 50 years of our society. Click here for full information about the festival.
Women Together – Ngā Rōpū Wāhine o te Motu
To mark the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in 2018, we prepared an online version of Women Together: A History of Women’s Organisations in New Zealand / Ngā Rōpū Wāhine o te Motu.
For the new online edition we’ve updated the original essays to include new information about the past 25 years. There are also new images and videos, and links to relevant biographies and historical events. Entries on significant new organisations will be added throughout 2019.
