February news....

Hello Malagoers

It was great to see friends and new at our first meeting of 2017.  A big thank you to Penny for a fantastic workshop and for finishing off our creations!

We are all a bit fed up of the cold and dark, with many of us counting down the days until Spring.  So what better way to welcome in the first days of Spring than learning about colour analysis with Karen Lowe.  Karen is a long-time friend of Malago WI and we delighted that she will be joining us again.  She studied textile design at Nottingham Trent University.  Following a career in marketing and the birth of her daughter, Karen decided to retrain as an image consultant and has been helping clients ever since.

During the evening Karen will discuss how colours can instantly change the way you look, giving you a younger, fresher and vibrant appearance.  We hope that we will have some willing volunteers to help Karen with a colour analysis demonstration.  She has also asked that everyone bring a brightly coloured item which you love or think you can’t wear and she will take a look.

If you fancy celebrating all that is WI, why not visit the WI Fair taking place on 29th March – 1st April 2017 at Alexandra Place London. There will be hundreds of stalls and exhibitors offering craft, cooking and creativity. Tickets are currently on sale.

The WI is currently looking for feedback on its future and is asking members to complete a questionnaire.  Members can fill in the survey via hard copy, on pages 49-51 of the November/December issue of WI Life and return it using ‘Freepost NFWI’; or online using this link  Deadline for responses is 28th February.

If you didn’t renew your membership in January, you are still able to do so.  Membership for 2017 is £39 and payment can be made by cash or cheque.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 23rd February!
