October 2013 – Poppy Appeal

make, do & mend man October 2013

Many thanks to everyone who joined us in our new home this month.

Judging by the feedback you all seemed to like the new venue, it had a cosy feel & was much brighter than the Phoenix.

With this in mind I’ve decided to hold the next 2 meetings there & possibly into 2014.

2013-10-01 21.33.39

So how did we do?

2013-10-01 21.47.01

You all made some beautiful poppies!

Make oct CollageWe also had knitting & sewing.

I was very impressed with my urn & made tea all night….. hence the lack of photo’s!

We will be selling the poppies in the shop soon….. watch this space for dates.

Our next meeting in November will be Christmas decorations

As always the fee is £3.50…. don’t forget not only are you making things & having fun but you’ll also be helping the RSPCA Little Valley Animal Shelter
