Dear Ladies

What a wonderful start to the year last Monday meeting was and it was lovely to see so many new faces.

The next meeting will be on MONDAY 6TH FEBRUARY 2012 from 8pm and we are delighted to confirm that MARY JANE BAXTER, the author of "Chic on a Shoestring" will be our speaker.

Mary Jane is a writer and craft expert. She was a journalist at the BBC for 12 years before leaving to train as a couture hat maker. She now runs textile and millinery courses across Europe and writes and reports on fashion, craft and creativity for BBC television, guardian.co.uk, Sew magazine, Cloth and Selvedge.

This will be a amazing opportunity to find out how to, with very little money, revamp your wardrobe and update old items.

For more information see http://www.maryjanemakes.com

We look forward to seeing you there and in the meantime do contact me if you want more information etc.

Regards

Gill
Secretary - Honor Oak WI

Hi Roz

We have only just moved to the HO; the meeting is downstairs in the function room not in the bar but pints welcome and yes women of all ages.

Plus of course a couple of drinks in the bar afterwards

Dear Ladies

Just a reminder that our next meeting will be this coming MONDAY 11TH JUNE 2012 from 8pm; the theme is Summer Fairs.

The Summer Fairs are coming around fast so we thought it would be a good idea to use this meeting to get started on handicrafts etc; ideas so far are:

Beaded Jewellery Items
Honor Oak WI Banner
Knitted & crocheted items etc
Bunting kits Ė completing that already started and maybe some more
Etc Ė ideas please

Donít worry if you (like me) canít even thread a needle, just some along for a chat.

If you are able to then please do bring along some lovely fabric, wool, needles, pinking shears etc. it would really help.

Just to remind you that we meet at:

The Honor Oak Pub
Downstairs in the Function Room
1 St Germanís Road
Se23 1RH
Starting at 8pm

Do come along, it would be lovely to see you
