October 2014

The club had an arcticle and photos published in the local Yateley Town Crier, so we hope it encourages some new members and guests.

On the weekend of 8th and 9th November some of us will be attending the Ann Brown of Posh Frocks weekend workshop. This is a local event held in the Yateley WI hall. If it is something you are interested in finding out more about, then contact Sandra for details.

We also had our charity evening where everyone made something under the title 'anything goes'. The items all go to our local sponsored charity "The Berkshire MS Therapy Centre" in Reading for them to sell at their Christmas Fair and raise much needed funds for the Centre.

Here are the items made and donated to the cause this month. We always have a competition where everyone at the meeting votes for their favourite, and the winner gets a prize, which is awarded at the Christmas meal.

This year Vee was selected as the winner for the pale green and apricot top with crochet and knitted flower embellishments.


Marcia made the cushions and produced an interesting texture using the Passap machine
