WI Dotty Challenge

Dot Roses on Heart shape.

Last week saw my first Speaker engagement for the Warwickshire WI (Women’s Institute) of the year.

The local Long Itchington Branch was attended by over 50 ladies and, following their formal meeting, I was delighted to be able to introduce them to Folk It!

Demonstrating the dotting technique to create hearts and roses, the ladies soon got to grips with the technique and produced some very pretty pieces.  On hearing lots of laughter I knew lots of fun was being had.  Add to that some wonderful feedback and the evening was complete.

Would you like a demonstration with member participation at one of your own events or meetings?  To find out more just send an email to with your information, date(s) and location and I’ll get back to you with the details.

Have a great week ahead!

Vanessa 😊

And now for the glitter

Decorated baubles.

It’s that time of year when most things we do involve glitter and here at ARC HQ there’s no exception.  Baubles and bottles, gifts and gadgets are all enhanced by a sprinkle and shake of glamour dust.

There are three opportunities for you to join in the fun too!  Come along to one of the following events during November where there will be ‘mini workshops’ for you to create your own bauble shape hanging decoration.

8th November – Autumn Craft Fair,  Hatton Shopping World – (this event will be on 8th/9th/10th Nov)

9th November – Claverdon Country Fayre, Dorothea Mitchell Hall

23rd November – Christmas Crafternoon, Queen’s Road, Coventry.  This even is in support of Breast Cancer Now.
