Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Knitting Resources

From Nicola:

The kids and I are getting into some very simple knitting at the moment, and we've found these sites that send out regular newsletters with free knitting and crochet tutorials and patterns. You have to ignore a bit of advertising in each one, but they have some good information for beginners. Here are some examples of the newsletters we've been looking at:

The Weekly Stitch
Lily Sugar'n'Cream

Nicola also sent out an article with the newsletter, written by Cat Bordhi on the benefits of including knitting in schools, which is quite interesting. Email her for a copy if you didn't get one with your newsletter.
