Chenille Bag Workshop, October 2017

A fantastic day was had by all the ladies who attended. They worked so hard and produced some amazing results! They rightly look very proud in their ‘finished product’ photograph below!


Threads of Essex Centenary Event

This was organised by the Essex Federation Cookery And Craft Committee .There were 82 ladies visiting Braintree Community Centre for this event today. The first speaker was Amanda Sutherland with her recycled jewellery, hats and chokers. We then had a lunch supplied by The Glass House a Vintage Cafe in Braintree. We had so much to eat by the end of lunch that ladies were even turning down Cake?! Unheard of by WI ladies! David Thomson then demonstrated Autumnal flower arrangements whilst amusing us with his stories. David then raffled of all the arrangement joking that he expected the largest arrangement to be won by some one going home on a bike! A huge thank you to Lesley Evans of CC & C for organizing this day and to all who helped.
