Thursday 7th May 2009 - The Thorn Birds Musical

Some of the ladies from Talwrn Lite WI had an outing to Venue Cymru, Llandudno to see the musical production of Colleen McCullough's "The Thorn Birds".
The only way to describe the show is that it was "unexpectedly different" having us howling with laughter. It was an excellent way to get to know other members of Talwrn Lite away from the usual village hall environment.

Meeting - Wednesday 6th May 2009

Following the main business part of the meeting, we discussed our Annual Show exhibit. Some interesting ideas were thrown into the pot and our entry is really taking shape.
This month our Guest Speaker was Alison Chapman of Rhosmeirch who teaches patchwork techniques in Anglesey & Gwynedd.
Alison brought along bags of her stunning quilts. Showing us her early creations, works in progress and more recent projects, including bags and wall-hangings. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Talwrn ladies will be joining her class in September!
Alison also provided us with a hands-on craft project. She demonstrated how to make cute bunnies and chicks from a face cloth and we also made a little draw-string bag from squares of fabric too.
Each member of Talwrn Lite received a free BusyLizzie plant to take home.

Meeting - Wednesday 8th April 2009

At this meeting there was quite a bit of business to be discussed, which unfortunately took quite a while to relay to the Talwrn Lite members.
With the AFWI Annual Show looming in June we thought we could benefit from some guidance on show etiquette. We therefore invited AFWI Chairman, Audrey Jones to be the guest speaker. Audrey has many years experience of entering and judging shows, so she was the ideal candidate to provide an insight into how to enter and present our show exhibits.
