I hope you all enjoyed last month’s meeting with Camilla from Stella and Dot – such a lovely selection of gems and jewels and some great tips on accessorising your outfit. We also raised £36 in the raffle which goes in to our funds, thanks to Camilla’s prize donation.
Our meeting this month, Wednesday 27th May, also requires accessories, albeit of a slightly different kind as we’ll be having a demonstration workshop in the art of burlesque dancing.
Mala says ‘Burlesque is for ALL women, regardless of age, shape or size and is a powerful tool in promoting well being , thus raising our levels of self confidence, self esteem and body image. Not to mention having lots of fun and a great experience of female camaraderie!’
so slip on a pair of heels and prepare to have some fun.
We mentioned the WI bulb scheme at last month’s meeting, no orders were placed then so just to remind you all that anyone who does want to place an order will need to do this at Wednesday’s meeting and payment will be required at the same time.
We have confirmed Malago WI’s presence at North Street Fair on Saturday 27th June. We’ll be selling cakes and our lovely Emily Ketteringham designed tea towels. Of course, we’ll need your help with baking cakes and helping out on the day itself, so let us know what you can do to help and prepare to have sign up sheets waved in your face at the next meeting!!
While on the subject of helping out, we’re also keen to get a couple more people on to the Malago WI committee. The 5 of us do our best, but a couple of extra pairs of hands would be a great help.
Again, let us know if you want to know a bit more about what’s involved (nothing too arduous, I promise.)
On a similar note, if any budding photographers among you would like to bring along your camera and take a few photo’s during our meetings for us to use on our newsletters and social media pages, it’d be great to have a more visual record of what we get up to.
Finally, we’d like to say congratulations to 2 of our members, Gerry Prescott and Karen Bowers. Both were awarded ‘Gold’ for their entry in to the regional heats for the Avon Federation Arts and Crafts exhibition, so their work will be on display at the exhibition itself at M-Shed on 19th and 20th September.
So, with that said, we hope to see lots of you on Wednesday!
