SHEPLEY WIs' CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS!



On June 16th 2015 Shepley WI hosted a Tea Party and invited neighbouring WIs. 

It was a lovely afternoon and we recalled that on June 16th 1915 a meeting held in North Wales sowed the seeds for the formation of the first WI in that same village on September 16th 1915.

CHRISTMAS PREPARATIONS START EARLY WITH THE WI!

On a rather dull August day, 13 members from Institutes across the Federation came together at the Federation Office to make Rag Rug Christmas Trees.

They used scraps of fabric and ribbon with hessian and a proddy tool to create their own trees under the instruction of our tutor Christine Meredith.


As you can see from the photos and comments below they all had a great day.

'Enjoyed it very much, first playtime - enjoyed myself and want to come again' - Nostell WI

'Lots of fund with little cost, great hobby' - Thornhill WI


'Really good day, everyone very friendly and supportive' - Roberttown & District WI

'My first craft class, it was a wonderful experience, can't wait to come back' - Shibden WI
