Crafty Nights Out 2014

27 March 2014 and 29 May 2014 – bunting making with Scrapiana

Eirlys at Scrapiana came back to run a Bath WI workshop making beautiful scalloped bunting – such a hit we had to run a second workshop in May! Some of us progressed rather better than others…some of us (yes, I mean me) chatted too much! We all had a great time and now have strings of bunting we can proudly say we made ourselves!

It wasn’t all chatting – there were times you could almost hear the concentration,

Fuelled with cups of tea, lemon cake and flapjacks…

Roped my other half in to taking a couple of group photos…for posterity!

Eirlys was lucky to make it home with that cute little Singer sewing machine…now top of my wish list!

And this sewing machine was even smaller!

My finished bunting in pride of place! (I had to finish it on my own the next day…)





19 June, 26 June and 3 July 2014 – lotions and potions with Clare Harris

Clare Harris spoke to the Bath WI about the benefits of aromatherapy and her talk was so popular that when Clare agreed to run a lotions and potions workshop where we could mix up our own creams, it was so oversubscribed she had to run three workshops for us!

Everybody loved the workshops – we each took home two creams and the air smelled wonderful! We have even been able to twist Clare’s arm to persuade her to run a special Christmas lotions and potions workshop for us so we can make some creams as Christmas presents.


23 July 2014 – beaded jewellery making with Made by Sami

We had a lovely time at Sally’s house with Sami of Made by Sami – and all came home with several pairs of really professional looking earrings (and a number of us bought pliers and wire so we can make more at home).

Sally spoilt us rotten with Pimms and palmiers…




6 November 2014 – WI Hotties

Have you ever had that hand to forehead moment when a favourite soft and cuddly jumper appears hot out of the tumble-drier, shrunk to a size you haven’t been since you were at junior school? Well Scrapiana (the lovely Eirlys Penn) showed us how to take such an item and turn it in to a hot water bottle cover, to be cuddled forever after – a perfect Christmas present!
