Craft Group

This months meeting was on 11 Sept. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon at Sue Fox’s home, thank you Sue.

We are progressing well with items for the Christmas Sales Tables, with new ideas still emerging.

Skills sharing is moving forward with several members keen to learn to crochet, Sue M is our resident expert and will be getting together with a small group soon. Another small group is investigating the making of soap, more on that soon!

Concentration is the name of the game when it comes to crafting, Mary gave a very good example of this, totally immersed, she nearly missed the tea break.

New members are always welcome to join us. Next meeting is at Kim’s home on 22 October 2pm.

Craft Day

A great way to spend an afternoon at Linda’s in Shanklin , with like minded members from Creekside WI.

We had decided to get together to make some Christmas craft items for the Christmas Fair for Federation in Newport later in the year.

Some fab ideas, have been put forward, and we have arranged groups to meet during August,September, and October to make a selection of items. Suggestions put forward to make included, face cream in decorated jars, Christmas decorations for a tree, wreaths made from material and put on a hessian back, to hang on a door and other Pom Pom decorations for a tree. More adventurous ideas were dream catchers, but I think that will be a later project, when we are a little more experienced.
