The first meeting of the year is the perfect time to pay our dues, renew memberships and friendships, and welcome newcomers to Birchgrove WI! Membership forms will be available for you to fill in on the evening, but why not get ahead of the curve by printing out your own at home, and bringing it in already completed? A year's membership will set you back just £39, which can be paid in cash or by a cheque made out to Birchgrove WI.
But it's not all paperwork! We'll also be learning a bit about the oldest textile of them all: felt. There'll be no time for woolgathering as we discover the many ways in which it's been made and used across the centuries, and how it's found its way into everything from hats to tents, from pianos to burial shrouds.
I'm Becki - Vice President of the group and willing volunteer to coordinate the website and social networking! Enjoy the Blog!
