WYFWI Table Top Sale

Wednesday, 14 December 2011 § 0

As part of the West Yorkshire Federation of Women's Institutes we do our bit to raise money for them, as well as for our own group.

A recent event was a Table Top Sale in Rodley, just near the WYFWI offices.

Buns & Roses had a table to sell our members' handmade wares and Gemma was also promoting the WI's own Denman College in Oxfordshire.

 One of our younger Members Natalie was selling some of her unwanted items - check out all those cuddly toys looking for new homes!
And this is Janet, one of our newest Members, who makes totally yummy biscuits and preserves.

We've one more craft fair for the year (see for details) then we'll be looking forward to events in 2012.

The West Yorkshire Federation of Women's Institutes again had a stand at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate this year and some of our Members were among the ladies helping out over the four days.

Everyone had great fun demonstrating various craft techniques and talking to visitors.

The stand was decorated with some really beautiful pieces - WI ladies really are a talented bunch.

Our December workshop was Have Yourself a Crafty Little Christmas where we made three festive projects.

We're all set for the festive season now!
