September Meeting

Our September meeting started with an introduction to ribbon embroidery, demonstrated by Maureen Joyce, which was much enjoyed.

The afternoon speaker was Kim Thittichai who gave us a talk entitled “The story so far” . Kim brought some lovely examples of her exuberant colourful work for us to look at and those who were attending the following day’s workshop knew they were in for a treat!

TV STAR3

Incidentally, whilst we are on the subject of fame and fortune, our President, Marjorie, has recently become a TV Star – appearing in an interview with John Craven on Countryfile. Marjorie was in the Singleton Branch of the WI, and recalled how in 1915, a small group of ladies met at the Fox Inn in Singleton, near Chichester, and formed the first branch of the Women’s Institute (WI) in England.
