March Meeting WI CAN CRAFT

What a fantastic evening we had!  The evening was filled with topics related to crafting and included a competition open to all WI members.

The competition categories were:

  • Home knitting
  • Crochet
  • Soft toys
  • Something for tea
  • Upcycled Jeans
  • A needlecraft sampler
  • Quilt or patchwork
  • Water themed decoration for the WI Hebden Bridge Arts Festival tree

There were some fantastic entries

It wasn’t just about prizes though.

There was a quiz about crafting, a tombola and a guess the number of buttons in the jar competition

Even the cakes that were served with our tea and coffee were craft themed – decorated with buttons made from chocolate, and there were biscuits that looked like huge buttons too

There were prizes – highly commended and first prize in each section.  There was also a Star Maker prize which was awarded to Vanessa Kay who had submitted some fantastic pieces in every section

Everyone had a fantastic time and many of us left with inspiration for future  projects
