Paper Cut Roses and Icing on Cookies...

Once again we were blown away with the turnout for this month's meeting! It was fabulous to see lots of new faces alongside our regular Belles. 


This month we were delighted to welcome our Special Guest Speaker, the wonderful Nila Holden, who presented a demonstration on icing cookies. 

Nila has a unique vintage decoration style and is a true talent, her cookies are available to order online so be sure to check our her website at http://www.nilaholden.co.uk/ .

I am sure that our Belles will be going straight home to try to emulate her fabulous demonstration and we look forward to seeing their efforts.

Nila brought along some fabulous customised W.I.  cookies and cupcakes which were welcomed with open arms and promptly devoured by our Belles - delicious! 


Following Nila's demonstration, our very own President, Claire Spake, demonstrated how to make Paper Roses.  These went down very well with our gals and lots of fun and laughter was had putting these together.    They can be made from any patterned paper and we had some great creations by the end of the evening.

Once again our themed Trade Table was a great success, this months theme was Kitchenalia to marry in with Nila's demonstration. 

Next month's table will be Jewellery and Accessories themed, so if you would like to sell at the table, please contact Rebecca London beforehand either by emailing us or through our Facebook page. 

Elsewhere, the lovely Lia took a moment to speak about upcoming Events in the local area that may be of interest, a list of these can be found here on the 'Local Events' tab.  If you have any events you think may be of interest to our Belles then please email us and let us know. 

Lia also mentioned our Group's first major Event in September - we will be hosting a Burlesque Night!!  So keep checking back for more details under our 'Group Events' tab.  Also if anyone would like to volunteer to help us with the organising, please email us. 

Next month we are very excited to welcome our Guest, Sarah of Doo-wop Do's who will be demonstrating Vintage Hair Styling.  She will cater for all lengths and styles so please don't worry if you think your hair is too short to do anything with - this gal works wonders!

Until then Belles, toodle pip!
