The Peninsula Weavers are a group of 15 weavers, who also spin wool, silk, art yarn and many other more exotic fibre, they knit, crochet and felt.

This list is by no means exhaustive as members will try and explore any fibre art and craft to create new art pieces or commodity articles.

We meet at the Whangaparaoa Library on the 4th Tuesday of the month (February to November).

The group was founded in 1975 when individual spinners and weavers saw a need for mutual support and got together to form the Peninsula Weavers. They flourished in the 1980's and 90's with exhibitions, fashion parades and shows hosted at the Whangaparaoa Hall, Library and other locations in the Hibiscus Coast area. Archival photos and newspaper articles prove the popularity of the group together with other groups around the area.

The group continues to meet and support each other in their crafts and to create their fashion garments, household articles,toys, art pieces etc. They are affiliated to Creative Fibre New Zealand/Auckland region.

They have contributed and continue to do so, to charities with baby knitting, blankets, hats and toys; Teddy bears being very popular. Mutual support encourages us to strive for excellence with improvement in design, technique and presentation. New members are always welcome.

Annette Ashton, Sophie Austin, Hilde Blank, Rosemary Burnby, Pam Chrisholm, Elaine Curtis, Sharon Dooney, Margaret Marshall, Linda MacDonald, Annette Montgomery, Sue Parker and Rae Simpson.
