We got a little bit hot in the sun on Thursday at St Margaret's House Garden Party, but that hasn't stopped us hoping for more sun on Saturday when we are at the the Piccadilly Community Centre from 10 - 6.  Come and buy a bag, make a pom pom or rag a rug, have a cup of tea and something to eat.  Or just blossom in the sun (we hope).

tea anyone?

Right now we're thinking about what cakes to make for a couple of events we've got coming up this week.  On Thursday we'll be serving tea and cake at St Margaret's House Garden Party, a family event for the local community.  Admission is free and includes lots of fun things for children and, erm, us of course with our tea and cakes.  Do pop in and say hello if you are around.

We're also very excited about being involved in the pop-up Piccadilly Community Centre this Saturday 30th July from 10am until around 4.30pm.  Hauser and Wirth Art dealers have converted their Piccadilly gallery, just along the road from Fortnum and Mason, into a fully functioning community centre for a ten weeks, complete with a charity shop, a range of classes,  a community canteen, and a stall outside in the St James Arts and Crafts Market.  We'll be making tea and selling  food in the canteen, running some indoor crafting activities, and selling muffins/ cupcakes and crafted goods on the outdoor stall. It's the centre's last day, so we want to make sure as many people as possible know about the work of the WI and what a lovely cup of tea we make.  Along with everything else, of course.

Come and say hello!

July Meetings

We're really excited to have the lovely Ruth along at our next meeting on 19th July to talk to us on how to discover your true shape and learn how to dress to enhance it.  Yes, ladies, we're being superstyled!

The question on everyone’s lips will be what body shape am I? When you discover your true shape you can quickly learn to dress to enhance it. You will have many "ah ha!" moments when you realise why clothes suit you and others don’t. You will be able to shop quickly and with confidence in future and enjoy choose outfits from your wardrobe that really flatter and enhance your best bits. It will revolutionise the way you look and feel when you get dressed.

The talk will last about 25-30 minutes including live demonstrations and there will be a special offer on the night for EEWI women to tap into more of Superstyling’s personal shopping and personal styling services.Ruth’s website is:

So come along, bring a friend (£3 suggested donation for non- members), share a cake, whatever. Tuesday 19th July at St Margaret’s House, Old Ford Road, E2, 7.30 for 8pm start.

Don't forget too that we will also be taking in Denman Award applications (follow the link for a copy of the form) for our fabulous £200 bursary towards the cost of a Denman College course.  If you're not sure what you fancy, then take a look at the new Denman website here.  So much to choose from!

For our Coffee Morning this month we are hoping to go to the Counter Cafe on Roach RoadFish Island. The café has moved into Stour Space Art Gallery and has stunning views of the Olympic Park. We plan to meet there at 10.30am and if anyone is interested in either joining a cycling party to the café or a public transport one or would like a lift please do let us know.

The 339 from Bow goes to near to the café and is easy to get to by bike.
