February ’16 meeting


Cakes this month included the much talked about Bakewell Buns!  Thanks to everyone who baked and don’t forget you get entry into the special Bakers Raffle at the end of the year.



We had our first Members Craft Stall this month.  Each month one of our members will be selling items from their ‘day jobs’ or hobbies.  Helen Kennedy opened up her stall selling jewellery & pictures.

If you are interested in the stall then ask one of the committee members for more details!


Deborah Simms was our guest speaker this month.  Deborah was a contestant on series 3 of “The Great British Sewing Bee” and talked about her time on the show, behind the scenes gossip and how it has helped her career.









Deborah has a love of sewing & dressmaking and enjoyed the experience of going through the television programme. She also got us all involved in making a bee pin cushion.



















Concentration!  And here are some happy finished bees at home!

This month was a huge raffle as members contributed items they had made. We had scarves, jewellery, cake, liqueurs & embroidery to name a few things. Thanks so much to all who contributed & well done those who got to take prizes home. Great idea Emma!









Next months speaker is Andrew Simcock of the Womanchester Statue campaign.
