Rabbits everywhere!.....

Rabbits appeared everywhere! Thanks to Jean Eke and her rabbit workshop, we had such fun. Why not take a look at Jeans Web site http://www.jeanmaryeke.co.uk
and meet her whole rabbit family.

We hope to have a good gathering of rabbits on May 11th, our next meeting. This time we are going to hear a 'Yarn about a Yarn' by Pauline Hardwick and she is also our supplier.

February Update

I had not realized that it had been so long since my last update! ‘Time goes fast when you are having fun’ as they say…

We had our 25th birthday in November, it was a great day ….cake made by Joke with a beautiful silver lace flower, she had designed and made, on the top. The early scrapbooks were there for a trip down memory lane, also members received a specially designed commemorative pillow bag, this was the winning design of an earlier competition.

Also we celebrated the New Year 2013 with our ‘New Year Banquet’, started in 2000 to bring in the new millennium in style, and now a much loved tradition.

Our March meeting is fast approaching on March 9th and we will be all making our Mad March Hares with Jean Eke.

Preparations are well under way for our Silver display at the Weald Fair on the 16th March 2013. 

This is to be held at Collyer’s Sixth Form College, Hurst Road, Horsham, West Sussex RH12 2EJ.
