The speaker at July’s meeting was Sue Fraser-Thompson talking about ‘Preventative Fitness for Women’. Sue is the Principal Practitioner at Fountain Square Physiotherapy and gave an interesting and engaging talk with lots of audience participation!
We also had a session of sampling jams, chutneys and lots (and lots) of cakes, in order to vote on which we felt should be part of our Disley Show entry. We also voted on 2 pictures.
The Poppy Project
Several members met for an evening of cutting out and sewing more leaves for our poppy project. We made another 30 leaves and lots of felt and embroidery thread was taken away for leaf making at home!
The Baking group went on a cake icing course …
The Lunch Club went to Brookside Garden Centre to eat at the new Topiary Restaurant
July Craft Workshop
Lesley B organised a craft workshop intriguingly entitled ‘Texture Magic and Bubbles’
We spent a lovely evening new techniques for making interesting textures
The purple fabric is backed with Pellon Fabric Magic Shrinking Interfacing, and the turquoise fabric has been pushed through a cooling tray, stuffed and sewn together!
Four members headed over to the Linnet Clough campsite for the WI Wigs and Wellies Camp last weekend. Had a great time doing henna tattoos, drinking elderflower champagne, listening to talks and making lots of leaves for our poppy project with help from lots of other lovely WI ladies
Thanks so much to the organisers for a great time! It was wonderful to meet so many different people 🙂
