food stories and fabric

Couldn't resist, sorry!

We're all about food and fabrics at our meeting next Tuesday.  We'd like to invite you to bring along your food stories and transfer them onto a piece of bunting that we can use to decorate the Edible Garden feast in September.  Is there a particular food that you love or loathe?  What food do you cook when you want to make someone happy?  Would you rather have tea and biscuits or coffee and cake?  We'll bring some fabric and yarn to help you sew your story, though do bring your own too if you want to. We're also going to be auctioning some lovely fabric, so don't forget to bring your pocket money too.  Usual time and place:  7.30 for 8pm, St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road, E2, Tuesday 21st August.  We'll have tea, coffee, cake and more for those who fancy a tipple.

And if you're missing your sport, don't forget that we'll be choosing 20 lucky members to receive a free ticket to attend the Paralympic Games on 31st August (hope they've arrived by then!)  If you can't be at the meeting and want to put your name in the hat, just email us at eastendwi(at)hotmail(dot)co(dot)uk by midday on 21st August.

For those of you who didn't manage to get on the Slow Boat last week, we have a second coffee morning next Thursday 23rd August at 10.30am when we'll be off to Elizabeth's house to sit in her garden, eat cake and watch the birds.  Details in the newsletter or drop us in email for the address.

Now back to that cup of tea.
