The Start of Something Special

Well it is all very exciting - our W.I. Group is now officially up and running!!!
Our first full meeting took place in February and we were absolutely thrilled with the turn out!  Following the signing of the Constitution and greetings by our Group Founders, Emma and Claire, we cracked on with our first activity and we were officially off and rolling...!  

Our Group Founders Emma and Claire sign the Constitution 
- we are now an official W.I. Group!
And goodness what talented ladies we had turn up!  Our first workshop was presented by Emma who taught us how to make fabulous Felt Rose Brooches while Jen hosted Knitters Corner teaching us the basics of knitting.  
A great time was had by all and it was great to see everyone chatting and having a laugh throughout the evening. 
The Felt Rose workshop is in full swing
The finished product!

We aim to have a fun new craft to learn each month, however the Knitters Corner will be a constant presence so anyone wanting to learn to start knitting from scratch or even brush up on their existing skills will get their fix!   
Knitters' Corner - always good for a natter
Another regular feature of our monthly meetings will be our Trade Table, any of our talented Belles who would like to sell any of their handmade wares will be able to display on our Trade Tables, all we ask is that you donate 15% of your takings from the evening to the Group, which will help towards funding future activities and cost of hall hire. 

We would like to thank everyone who made it along and we can't wait to see you all again at next month's meeting and hope to see lots of new faces joining too!
Remember to keep checking back for details on our upcoming activities on the Meetings & Activities page.
Until next time, bye for now!
Our Group Founders Dawn, Claire and Emma with W.I. Representatives Annona and Joyce
