Our next meeting is on Thursday 13 December: Christmas crafts!
Our ever popular craft taster evening returns, this time with a festive theme. Try your hand at felting, sashiko embroidery, painted eggs, pfeffernusse biscuits, or go wild on our bits and bobs table. Some of the activities are limited in number so there will be sign up sheets out for you to add your name to when you arrive on first come basis.
There will also be a raffle in aid of the Cellar Trust who have recently experienced a fire at their premises.
We will also launch our 2019 programme – it may just be the best yet!
There is no charge for members and guests are very welcome (£3 payable per guest).
Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank
We will collect items for the Foodbank. If you wish, Christmas items such as Mince Pies, Christmas Puddings, packet/tinned White Sauce or Custard, Quality Biscuits, Selection Boxes or Chocolate coins etc would be well received. Regular items also gratefully received.
What will happen at the meeting?
The meeting starts at 7:30 in the hall at St Peter’s Church, Moorhead Lane. There’s always time to grab some refreshments (inlcuding mince pies!) and catch up with friends or meet new people, and the meeting itself will start at around 7:45.
We always start with a brief business meeting, led by our President Fiz. We’ll share news and future plans – it can be handy to have your diary with you to note down dates.
After that we split into groups for the different craft activities. Spaces on some crafts are limited: there will be sign up sheets available when you arrive fo you to add your name on a first come first served basis.
The meeting will finish at around 9 p.m.
I’m not a member – can I come?
Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.
Our usual guest fee is £3. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you and say hello!
What should I bring with me?
It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events.
We are continuing to collect items for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank and the Red Box Project, so do bring along any food or sanitary products you wish to contribute.
