Barbara Morgan introduced Margaret Smith from Almeley WI; her subject was entitled ‘My Adventure into Nakedness and Hessian’. Following the intriguing title, we were relieved that the nakedness referred to the naked cake which Margaret made for her son’s wedding. Margaret had lots of items made from hessian which showed her sewing talent, as well as the hessian bouquet she made for her daughter in law for her wedding. We all had a go at making card flowers from a twig and card cut from toilet roll centres; we were assured we should only use the best quality toilet roll! Marion Weaver gave the vote of thanks.
