April meeting-Ringo the Crafty Flamingo

Updated: 2 days ago

Spa Sweethearts April Blog – Making paper flowers with Sarah

How lovely was it to see Sarah back for a return visit from Ringo the Crafty Flamingo for

another crafting session? Paper flowers were on the agenda, adding to our growing

repertoire of crafting skills. Just before the crafting started we welcomed Heather, the

visiting chair of North Yorkshire West Federation WI, here to present us with the Ella Pullen

award in recognition of our membership numbers in 2023. She was so impressed and

complimentary about the friendly atmosphere she could see and feel in the room. Sarah

began by giving us a quick guide to making several types of flowers as well as providing

comprehensive instructions on each table. She offered a wide range of resources in a vast

array of colours and patterns including paper, ribbons, wool, wreath rings and much more.

An evening full of laughter, friendly chat and socialising whilst being creative. There was a

fantastic selection of classy flowers, collages and wreath designs created, with the ladies

gaining a feeling of accomplishment. Altogether a blooming good night, ladies! Everyone

had a chance to enjoy refreshments of tea, coffee, chocolate biscuits or a tasty slice of

tangy lemon drizzle cake, homemade by Shirley. At our May meeting we are looking forward

to hosting the fair trade organisation, Artizan Café and Creative Space in Harrogate who are

coming to talk to us. All members and guests are welcome to join us for an interesting

evening. Not to be missed!
