Sad News - Caroline Walker
Caroline Walker sadly passed away on the 8th December 2023 after a long struggle with cancer. Her funeral was held on the 12th January at 12:30 at the South Bristol Crematorium, where a number of Guild members were represented.
Caroline Walker joined the Avon Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers in 2007.Although suffering from ill health, Caroline continued to support the Guild in many ways until she finally let her membership lapse in 2022.
At least she is now at peace and free of pain.
Our thoughts go out to Ben and her family at this sad time.

The January meeting was a Members Skills Day where members demonstrate their various skills. Frances did circular weaving on a hoola hoop. Maggie and Ronan lead the nålbinding.
It was also Annual Subs Renewal Day. We are delighted to welcome a large number of newcomers, who have recently joined the guild, especially the younger generation - as we want to keep our skills alive.
