June meeting recap-Cake pop fun!

We had a cake-pop based gathering for our June meeting, lovely Liana showed us all how to make and decorate cake pops, and how to avoid disasters with some easy tips.

As well as cake pops we made chocolate shapes, including mustaches. Liana answered all of our baking questions, then we dived in to taste test the cake pops, so decadent and delicious.

April Meeting Recap

There was a bit of a change to our April meeting, unfortunately Lucille from Lucille’s Lockes was unable to come so after a quick swap between the April and May plans, we had a great evening of learning English Paper Piecing with lovely Erin!

English paper piecing is a really simple craft,all you  need is some scraps of fabric, paper, scissors, pins and threads. It wasn’t long before we had all managed to attach some shapes together in an amazingly fast and satisfying way. Check out these pictures of how we all got on….

Recap of March 2014 Meeting

March was our ‘Getting to know you’ meeting. We have lots of new members at the moment and since one of the primary aims of the WI is to meet and get to know new people we thought a night of fun ice-breakers was in order.

The night was great fun and sparked some interesting discussions, we also had to say three facts about ourselves, one of which was a lie. This put our acting skills to the test and we all got to know some fun facts about each other.

Here are some pictures from the night!
