NYW Zoom Along

Introduction

Over the last few months everyone has been deprived of the opportunity to meet up with WI friends or take part in courses and events.

NYWFWI trustees have now decided the time has come for us to provide for our members an opportunity to have fun and acquire  knowledge, skills and entertainment  and possibly provide an encouragement for new members about what the WI has to offer.

The cost per course will be £5.00 per member, there are no additional software costs but you will require an internet enabled device ie a PC, iPad, tablet, mobile phone.

New Ideas for an old craft

Bell Bobbin Knitting

I am sure some of you will remember French Knitting using a small thread bobbin with four nails in the top. We all liked to knit the tubes but could never think what to do with the finished result.
This demonstration will put a modern twist on an old technique. I like to make matching accessories for clothes and for the knitters amongst you it is a good way to use up those precious yarns. I also use all sorts of different yarns and embellishments to make unique pieces.
This craft is ideal for cosy nights by the fire and to share with younger members of the family.  I have some hand turned hardwood bobbins for sale after the demonstration.
Jan is a teacher, textile artist and I run workshops using many different techniques

Stunning Presents! Christmas Crafts


Join Felicity for another session to make superb decorations for your Christmas festivities.
Felicity is the founder of Felicity Crafts, a small independent craft school which has developed from my WI craft club. She has worked in Education for over 20 years and now deliver a range of crafts via Zoom and live, for all abilities, using materials most people will have at home. She is also the proud President of Spa Sweethearts WI in Harrogate. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPJA2qSZbReffRz4_8K0aRg

Tonight she will demonstrate how to make a bag to complement a present and a present/table table decoration using items you will proabably have in your home.

For the gift bag any stiff paper will do but if you want to do it as a gingerbread house you need brown paper and a white gel pen, double sided tape and a small piece of card. As they are both demos rather than craft alongs, you can just watch then get the stuff later if you want.
For the Christmas tree you will need a polystyrene cone, 2 contrasting fat quarters of fabric and a whole load of pins.
