Learning something new

Crafty WI in Old Buckenham
Old Buckenham Women’s Institute ran a successful Craft Day in the Village Hall today. Nearly sixty ladies from neighbouring WIs came along to get an insight into what was probably, for them, a new craft skill. And they all went away clutching the product of their hard work, ready to go home and say “Look what I made today”.
There were five crafts being taught, embroidery on gingham, pewter work, beading, patchwork and decorating a tin. Under the watchful eye of their tutors the participants persevered and found that they could produce something that they were proud of. Several people commented on how quiet it was in the hall with everyone concentrating on learning something new.
Behind the scenes there was plenty of work going on preparing food and drink to keep everyone fed and watered throughout the day.
