Craft GroupWork on your own projects, improve your skills and work with us on WI craft projects
The group meets at a member’s house and as dates and venues are arranged, details are added to the Calendar. All levels of expertise are catered for from the beginner to the experienced crafter and all levels in between. When there is no specific joint project underway, members are invited to bring their own current pieces and to work on them while enjoying a sociable afternoon or evening.
Projects in 2019 included the following:
Every WI in Oxfordshire was asked to embroider a leaf to be part of the Oxfordshire WI 2019 Centenary wall hanging. Each leaf had to show the full name and date of inauguration of that WI. We chose a sycamore leaf as one was on the banner of the first WI in Adderbury, and one of our members designed and stitched it.
We later found out that the original was actually a maple leaf, celebrating the Canadian origin of the WI movement!
Members created items for a group entry for the OFWI craft exhibition at Didcot. and in the Autumn we made small poppy badges, one for for each member to wear at the November meeting.
Group members also helped with making the decorations for our entry in the 2019 Christmas Tree Festival.
