"We're feeling pretty chuffed at NEA as one of our much loved textile artists, Annie Longmuir, has bought home a selection of prizes from the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo.
Annie received a first prize for a felted then dyed scarf/wrap (pictured below #1) and second for a shawl (pictured below #2) which she had designed and knitted with handgun superfine merino. Both were made from Wendy Beer's Beersheba super fine merino.
The dyed felt scarf also won a special prize for the best super fine merino, the Gordon Ford Memorial Prize.
Congratulations, Annie, from all at North East Artisans"
