Crafting Extravaganza Last Night!

Last night at Market Harborough WI, our President, Anne, presented us with a tempting array of Christmas craft ideas for us to try out over the festive season.



Anne talked us through how to make many of these items – from simple table decorations, to wreaths, paper ornaments and even elves on shelves and skis!    Most of the materials she had sourced very cheaply from discount and charity shops, such as Christmas baubles, lights and glass vases.   Other materials she had used included pine cones, wool and a surprising number of empty wine bottles!   This enabled her to make items at a fraction of the cost of shop bought items.

Here’s ones she made earlier!

Afterwards, we had lots of fun trying to recreate some of these craft items for ourselves, producing our own highly original range of wreaths, paper ornaments and some very stylised elves!


Look out for details of our Christmas Party in December.    Remember, because of the Christmas Bank Holiday, it is a week earlier than normal – on Wednesday, 19th December.

Lizzie Bainbridge and her mum Patrice run the stall together so one of them is always there.  They are on the stall right in front of you as you come in through the main doors where the buses pull in so you can’t really miss them!  All going well the market stall is just a starting point. They are hoping to become a more permanent feature in Harborough in the near future so any support we can get is greatly appreciated.
