Coventry Spinning Guild and Jacob Fleece

I am a member of the Coventry Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers. We had our monthly meeting yesterday and so I thought I would take a few photos of the members - with their permission, of course!
The young lady who is weaving is our youngest member. She is 12 years old and comes with her grandmother the lady on the left of her). The yarn the young lady is weaving with was carded and spun by her too on her grandmothers spinning wheel. I am sooooo impressed!!

This photo is of some Jacobs fleece we have been given. The church hall where we meet is having its 50th anniversary next year, so we are spinning and weaving this fleece into a kneeler as a 'thankyou' to the church for the use of their hall.
