We attended the Campbelltown Steam Museum as it had an open weekend which incorporated The Society of Mechanical Organ Enthusiasts what generally are called Organ Grinders, yes there was one there with a monkey stuffed as it was.
Steam and old machines is a shared love between Sue and I the sights sounds and smells, the passion and care going into the restoration of these magnificent old machines which helped shape our world.

Mater Dei Fete.
Fairfield Spinners have been involved for many years at Mater Dei Fete at Camden this year foru of the ladies spent the day spinning and showing how they turn fibre into wool. Peggy, Michael, Veronica and Sue, I tag along as its a great day out.
The day itself for the guild wasn't a profitable one but its not what they go for its to spread the knowledge of the art of spinning and weaving.
