Sapphires have to be different and May's meeting certainly was that. We had a Ukulelee group come along and give us lessons on chord to play the instrument.
We had so much fun with members joining in on a singalong and also playing the chords learnt for more singing
We had one of our members give us a talk for the April WI meeting. Cathy Bowness who is a flower arranger.
She brought loads of flowers/leaves/ornamants and bits and gave us several demonstrations on basics and small arrangements to try at home.
Loads of enthusiasm by members, so much so pictures went up of members who had tried out Cathy's ideas

More ladies enjoying crafting and members of Little Sutton Sapphires had a fab 1st Birthday Crafting. Can't believe it has been one whole year since we signed the constitution and became part of the Cheshire Federation
Sapphires didn't hold a meeting in December, instead they had a Christmas Party at the Woodcote House Hotel. Forty two of our Eighty two members attended this evening and we had fun. Santa came to visit us and gave us small gifts. We sang songs and our own sapphire version of the Twelve Days of Christmas with actions off all members.... Raffles and a disco and merriment and fun
