THIS month’s meeting was on November 3 at Appleton Parish Hall.

Our demonstrator was Lorraine Simcox and the title of her demonstration was All Kinds of Everything.

As the title suggests each of Lorraine’s designs were created by using a variety of containers which she acquired from many different sources, including junk yards, charity shops and beaches.

She informed us that we could create an interesting design from anything.

Her designs were very unusual, clever and simple, using interesting foliage and beautiful flowers.

Our next meeting is our Christmas venue which takes place at Appleton Village Hall on December 1 at 7.15pm for 7.30pm start.

This is always a popular event, a limited number of visitors tickets are on sale. Our demonstrator is Alison Cooper and her title is Christmas Past and Present.
