Across the Plain...

Much was made at Wiltshire Federation's Annual Meeting (AM) of how Salisbury Plain provides a mental barrier to many travelling through the county. Well, 5 members of Pewsham Belles travelled across the Plain without difficulty yesterday and enjoyed plenty of Autumn sunshine and colour as a result. It was rather nippy though! Once again, we made our mark on the meeting in Salisbury. Fiona had an early slot to recite the amusing 'year in a poem' she shared at our AM earlier this year and deservedly won the loudest applause and laugh of the morning. Sally had background role, ensuring that the AV system worked, and it was great to see she managed to pop in an extra slide for Fiona's talk so th

October 2018: Upcycling with the Crafty Crew

We had a lot of fun at Thursday's Group Meeting where the Crafty Crew showed us how to upcycle unloved items of jewellery (our own or sourced from charity shops) into bright new pieces using memory wire. Some members also took the opportunity to source their outfits for next week's 70s evening at the Neeld Hall. Fiona P has a most useful dressing up box for us to plunder. Elsewhere the Book Club enjoyed Allison Pearson's How Hard Can It Be?; and the Crafty Crew had another go at paper cutting and made some spooky lanterns for Hallowe'en. The Flexi Group and Unofficial Supper Club both returned to old haunts; namely Rivo Lounge and the Gladstone Arms respectively. The Theatre Group enjo

Spooky Lanterns

This is a lovely tongue in cheek visual report from Diane about the Crafty Crew's return to paper cutting; one of the first crafts tackled when the group formed. Diane thought a Hallowe'en themed activity was perfect for October's get together and managed to source a fun template for everyone to tackle. She posted her own attempt at making the lantern on the Crew's message group to a positive response and voila! We look forward to the Crew leading us in the next group activity this week - bracelet making. Don't forget your beads to upcycle plus a T towel or similar cloth to hold your beads safely whilst you work with them.

October Book Club: How Hard Can it Be?

Wendy reports: "Another great evening with the Book Club ladies. Tonight we discussed How Hard Can It Be? by Allison Pearson. We scored this book.....I can't remember right now but we had a great evening. The next meeting is Tues 13th November at the Flying Monk. The book is Close to Home by Cara Hunter. Oh and Roy says the score was 6.5."* *= we agreed that "Roy" was one of the best parts of the book, used by the author to illustrate the vagaries of a menopausal memory in a humourous way. Roy was the imaginary archivist in the main character's brain tasked with fetching the answers to questions Kate knew were there, but finding hard to find. He would show up hours later with the answer, a

Comfort knitting

October's John Aubrey Group meeting welcomed Joyce Meader to Kington Langley village hall last night. Sally (via Facebook) has news of the meeting: "What a joy to be at yesterday's meeting to learn about "Knitted comforts for your soldier ....". Joyce Meader is a real "character" - really amusing and entertaining, and an amazing array of garments which would have been used in different wars/conflicts. And not a w**** warmer in sight!!!" Joyce is an expert on military and historic knitting and has been consulted for an impressive array of events and exhibitions. See her website - The Historic Knit - for more information.
