Paper Cranes and lots of new names with “A Kiss From a Paper Rose”

Saturday, 11 July 2015 § 0

June saw another one of our incredibly popular general meet evenings, giving all you lovely ladies a chance to meet and chat with each other with a side order of Origami making hosted by the lovely Lucy and Lauren. It was a fabulous day for new faces with lots of bouncy new characters joining us, hello to you all and how very nice to see you it was!

The meeting kicked off with a branch update from President the lovely Lucy, Finance update from our glamorous treasurer Grace and committee rep’ fantistique Lauren. These three wise women talked us though what has been going on in the branch, inc the recent trip to Whitby, future events such as next months bell ringing evening at Leeds Cathedral, Laurens hobnobbing with the royals at the WI garden party at Buckingham Palace and Graces experiences at the WI AGM at the Albert Hall.

Shameless plugs came from Gemma calling for sponsors for her charity fast to raise money to feed starving children with Pennyappeal and Lucy for any runners wanting to join her at Hyde Park Harriers Runners Club in view of the recent attacks in Leeds on lone female joggers - anyone can try it out and the beginner group runs to the pace of the slowest runner and won't let anyone feel left behind!

As the evening progressed the instagram and Facebook hash tags were flying as our crafting gurus helped guide our ladies into origami excellence with a veritable flock of paper cranes, a bouquet worth of origami roses as well as a selection of craft-stash storing boxes and paper hearts..very impressive ladies! I see 3d Christmas cards in your near future!

We would love to see you all again next month for more fun, friends and fantastical craft fabrications. Remember, Buns & Roses meets on the third Thursday of Every Month, and is a great place to meet new people from a diverse background in Leeds City Centre with monthly workshops and regular social events.
