getting ready for christmas!

We're starting to get into gear for our Christmas Market next Tuesday (details below).  Clare will be getting her spices  ready for the mulled wine, Elizabeth has signed up to make lots of mince pies and Niki went home yesterday to practice her fourteen pointed stars so that she can pass on her expertise.  Lydia is making some hand-made loveliness to sell for U-Turn and some of us got out the needles and thread yesterday to make some pretty heart-shaped lavender bags to go on the stall too. And we have some other lovely stalls lined up for you selling handmade goodness.  Entry is free for members, £3 donation for non-members.  

Times are tougher for everyone this year, but we know that EEWI members have big hearts  so we are also hoping you can also bring along a small wrapped gift for the women at U-Turn who will be joining us again this year.  It's greatly appreciated.

It would be lovely too if you're able to join us for our last coffee morning of the year.  We seem to have made it an EEWI tradition to go along to the Geffrye Museum to see a bit of Christmas past before we indulge in some Christmas Present.  It's a lovely setting, and  a great way to ease into the holiday.  We've decided to stick to the Friday after our meeting, so we'll be hoping to see you at 10.30 on 21st December at the Geffrye.  It may well be your last opportunity to sit down with a cup of coffee before the big day.

All women are welcome. Come and say hello.
