April Meeting

April was all about poppies…
We launched the Make, Do and Mend poppy appeal for 2011….
….and didn’t we do well!!!
 It was another sell out meeting & we made lots of poppies to raise money for the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. 
Thank you to everyone who attended & a BIG thank you to Jenny who came armed with fabric, patterns & the lovely labels.
We’ll be making more poppies later in the summer so watch this space but in the mean time feel free to carry on at home & bring them along to the next meeting.
We also had some knitting
I love this rabbit!
See you Tuesday 3rd May
