September Round Up

September has been a busy month, what with our craft club, monthly meeting and a plethora of cake stalls! We also welcomed some new members, and first-time visitors to our talks. Hope to see you all again in October!

We began with Craft Club where we knitted hats for Innocent Smoothies, and managed to make quite a few. Thanks to all knitters, we'll be sending the hats to Innocent soon.

At our September meeting, our dear friend and host of Craft Club, Geraldine Beskin from Atlantis Books, gave us a fascinating illustrated talk about the somewhat glamorous and eccentric Contessa Luisa Casati. Not only that, but to illustrate the folly of fashion, she brought along some rather wonderful shoes for us to admire (but not walk in!)

There were cake stalls this month at both Phoenix Gardens and St George's (for Open House). We sold a lot of cake, and got the word out to potential new members. Thanks to all who baked, sold or bought cakes!
