Upcycling August Meeting

What a very busy meeting we had! We all had a lovely time learning about upcycling from Debra of Honey Bee. Debra shared with us some of her wonderful upcylcling creations and ideas, and led us through a simple beginners workshop. Many cuts, knots and cuppas later our worn out t-shirts were turned into shopping bags!  A great effort was made by all and we ended up with some very delightful creations.

20160810_194130-2 We also hosted a clothing swap witch allowed our members to update their summer wardrobes with out breaking the bank. It also allowed for well over 100 pieces of clothing to be donated to several local charities. Well done ladies!

 

As September starts we are getting ready for many exciting events including our summer fete. Please check out our events page on Facebook to learn more about all of the upcoming events, including a  beer tasting (Sept 21st ) and beer festival ( Oct 8th)!
