OMG - the clocks have gone back and it's time for the AGM already! Our 16th November meeting is our Annual General Meeting - members only, please - when we will be rewarded for out rapt attention to the administration of our branch and election of officials etc by a delicious wine tasting, courtesy of the wine experts from Waitrose at Canary Wharf (thank you! thank you!). Non alcoholic drinks and complementary nibbles will also be available to taste. Remember to bring along the crafted wonders you have been making with your Cafe Direct coffee sacks for our competition, with prizes too. If you have not started snipping yet and need some inspiration, then go over to their flickr page and take a look at the wonderful things other WI members have already done - love those panniers. The meeting will be at our usual venue, St Margaret's House in Old Ford Road, next door to the Gallery Cafe.
Our coffee morning on Friday 19th November will be at Fresh, 275 Whitechapel Road which you will find immediately next door to the exit at Whitechapel Underground Station. It may look small on the outside, but there is plenty of room upstairs. We'll gather at 10.30am as usual.
If you are into crafting, here will be another meeting of the Curvey Crafters at the Salvation Army Hall on Kerbey Street, Poplar, E14 on Thursday 11th November, 7.30pm - 9pm. Just bring along whatever you are working on and share some good company. There is a small charge (£1.50) to cover the cost of refreshments.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
