Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances, the Fit Steps Instructor could not make it to the January meeting. But we didn't let it get us down, we decided to use the time to have a chat about our plans for the year ahead. It was a great opportunity to hear your views and to get everyone involved.
For our February meeting (which is also our 1st Birthday!!) we will be joined by Charlotte White of Restoration Cakes. Charlotte has a new baking book out called 'Burlesque Bakes' and she will be showing us a hands on demonstration on how to decorate some cupcakes in her unique style. Charlotte will also be bringing along copies of her book to sell on the night. To take part in the evening a fee of £10 will be charged for non-members and £5 for members (or those joining at the end of the evening).
March will be dedicated to getting to know one another and therefore we will be making Name Badges whilst 'Speed Dating'. This should be a fun night and is a great way of getting us all mingling with each other a lot more.
In April our very own Anya will be teaching us to make some sexy frilly knickers! Ooh la la!
The pattern will be supplied, but if you have a sewing machine, pins and needles, then please do bring them along. Suitable stretch lace and cotton jersey will be available to buy at the Craft Table in March and April. There will be a small fee (amount TBC) for this class to cover the cost of notions and other materials.
May is our AGM and it is your chance to vote for the Committee.
In June I am sure we will be beginning to seriously think about those summer holidays and what better way to make a start than unleashing your inner Tom Cruise with a Cocktail Making class!! To the designated drivers - don't worry you will not be left out, Mocktails will be on the menu too!
For our July meeting we are delighted to welcome back the fabulous Sarah from Doo-Wop Do's. She will be teaching us how to coiffure our barnets into some beautiful 20s/30s hairstyles, whether your hair is long or short she will have the perfect style for you to look fit enough for one of Gatsby's parties.
Its all about the Speed Crafting in August and we will be learning three new skills!!
Get your jivin' shoes on in September for a fantastic Jive Dance Class. Whether you are a regular Jive Bunny or you have two left feet this will prove to be a fabulously fun evening and definitely not one to miss.
In October we will be whisking you away to Venice for the evening.... well in sprit anyway. We will be creating our own Venetian Masks!
For our final meeting of the year we thought we would get you into the Christmas Sprit by creating a beautiful Christmas Wreath!
We are organising a Charity Quiz Night on the 7th June. We are still in the early days of planning at the moment but please mark the date in your diary.
We are also looking at finalising a date for the Clothes Swap and we will keep you posted on this.
We are also planning a trip to the Hitchen Lavendar fields again this summer and will advise you on this once a date has been finalised.
Well I think you will agree that 2014 looks like an exciting year ahead we hope you are as excited about our programme as we are and we look forward to sharing it with you all!
