Welcombe Spinners made a wall hanging for Meddon Hall

You should really see this for yourself, pictures can’t do it justice. A collaborative work by Welcombe Spinners members – we’ve lost count of exactly how many crafts and skills from how many members went in to this. It includes spinning (of course), knitting, felting, weaving, crochet, needlefelting, dyeing, tapestry, peg looming, fingerknitting, embroidery, applique and that’s probably just the half of it. The pictures combine the spinning group and Meddon village and its surroundings – iconic fingerposts, local flora, the hall itself, a friendly sheep, local views, and surely everyone’s favourite Meddon residents, the blue tits nesting in the postbox! The images are framed by a stylistic spinning wheel on a peg loomed background – robust as well as beautiful (a bit like Welcombe Spinners themselves?) hopefully visitors to Meddon Hall will enjoy seeing this for many years.
