June 19, 2013 Balham WI 0 Comments

Our meeting opened with a report from Maria, our President , on the NFWI AGM in Cardiff . This was attended by over 4000 women who mixed duty with fun as resolutions and amendments were put through before an afternoon of speakers including Griff Rhys-Jones and John Humphrys.
Rowan updated us on the results of the Bake Sale ; we raised over £350 for Wandsworth Women's Aid ! Thanks to everyone especially Rowan for all the organising .
Eithne Farry of Superscrimpers spoke to us of the fun of make do and mend , introducing us to her book of the same name and showing us all how to make corsages from scraps of fabric and net ; all in all a satisfying and productive evening!There are social events with other WIs on the horizon ,so watch out for updates on Facebook and Twitter....
