The August craft morning was taken by Lynne Balnves one of our member the theme was "simple embroidery". A great morning was had by the fifteen ladies who attended not forgetting the very tasty cakes and biscuits that were also provided.
To make the embroidery pictures we were given a sewing hoop, a piece of fabric, a choice of buttons and some thread. The photo of some of the hoops, shows that that we have some very talented ladies, although the hoops were unfinished, and they have been taken home to complete.
Smisby's March craft morning was taken by Sheila Heap, one of our many talented members .
As you can see we made these very delicate butterflies (and a cat crept in ) out of very fine mesh
and royal icing.
Every butterfly was decorated beautifully and all different, some I fear flew into the bin but most
of us made an attempt to come up with something resembling a butterfly.
Thursday's craft morning at the village hall was a very lively time as some members were finishing off their Victorian Etui boxes, whilst others were learning how to make Kanzasi flower out of material.
We did succeed as you can see from the photograph and everyone was very pleased with the end results.
Everyone enjoyed the good company and the super home made cakes supplied by Lynne, Lorna, and Margaret, with Muriel volunteering for tea duty. Thankyou. Thanks to Lynne and Anne our tutors for being very patient with us.
The craft morning taken by Marie was very different, as we had to use our imagination to make these beautiful images by drawing on polystyrene, covering it with paint, and pressing it on to paper.
As you can see we do have some very talented ladies as we all managed to make something to take home. Thanks Marie a great morning enjoyed by all.
Another very successful craft morning was spent in making Christmas baubles.
Jacqui Walker one of our members showed nineteen ladies how to make these beautiful tree heart shaped decorations. Everyone had a great time and were able to take a lovely item home ready for the Christmas tree. Some members designes are shown below.
As well as providing some super craft classes for Smisby WI, Jacqui runs the Ashby Crafty Beaders, which offers the opportunity for a craft and chat every Thursday and Friday morning. Also there is a monthly craft and prosecco evening on the ;ast Thursday of each month.
