Twisted Firestarters? Thankfully not today!

Our June meeting kicked off with our President Lia introducing the new Committee members to the group explaining a little about each of the roles. 

Rebecca spoke a little about the Trade Table to remind the Group that absolutely anything can be brought along, be it something you have made, something a friend has made or even if you are having a clear out and want to see if something will sell – remember one gals trash is another gals treasure!!   If you would like to bring along something to sell at any of the meetings then please get in touch with Rebecca via our email  


Tisa mentioned that our Summer outing this year would be to the Luna Cinema outdoor viewing of Back To The Future.  It is held at Highfield Park on the 23rd July at 7.30pm, performance starts at 9.15pm.  Tickets are £12.50.  Tisa urged anybody who was interested to get in touch ASAP as tickets are limited.  A Facebook post and email has also been sent out. 

Emma spoke about Larks in the Parks and informed the Group that we will have a stall at Victoria Playing Fields on the 29th June 2014. 

Lia informed the Group that we will be hosting a Clothes Swap event to raise funds for the Group and this will be held at a time to be confirmed in September, we will of course keep you updated on this.

Anya promoted Denman College and informed the Group that there are an abundance of courses aimed at all age groups from approximately £100 per day, this includes accommodation, meals etc.   Why not check out the website:

Lia reminded
the Group that the July meeting would be welcoming back the fabulous Sarah from Doo Wop Dos, who will be demonstrating 30s Finger Waves, so that is not one to be missed!

We then got down to the nitty gritty of our Speed Crafting evening, we divided into two groups, basically those who couldn’t wait to start playing with fire and those who couldn’t wait to start practicing their ninja knitting moves!

Faye demonstrated what I can only describe as a very impressive lesson on how to create a fabulous scarf using a huge amount of wool tied to your arm without getting tangled up in it!

Our gals did brilliantly and everyone had great fun in the process!

On the other side of the room we had Emma demonstrating how to create beautiful organza flower brooches/hair clips by burning the edges with a naked flame. 

Again there were some gorgeous results and we have only been left with a minor concern on how excitable our gals got when burning things!!

Once again a fabulous time was had by all and then it was over with far too soon and it was time to go home. 

Until next month mes amis!
