The 10th October was a very busy weekend for the Guildford Spike WI.

Many members attended the stitching and knitting show at London's Alexandra Palace. It was a fanatstic day, with unbelievable exhibitions and great stalls. We certainly got some great ideas and inspiration for the craft and chatter group.

Those who did not attend the London excursion were at the vintage fair in Guildford where we had a stall! It was more successful than last time and our table cloth had its first official outing!

Muriel enjoyed meeting one of the bake off contestants and discussed him possibly coming to visit the spike in the near future-watch this space.

Friday 2nd October 2015

Yesterday we celebrated our 3rd birthday, and what a night it was! We had a fantastic albeit slightly mad female comedian!
The ladies being entertained

We ate and drank a lot (not all of us).  We all enjoyed an amazing cake, made by Sarah J.

We also had the exciting and emotional unveiling of our table cloth. This was a project started by Caroline last year (our 2nd Birthday). Unfortunately she was not here to see it unveiled due to her sad passing last year. Despite this we all agreed that her spirit is in every stitch and we are so grateful to her mother for finishing the project for us in her memory!
The unveiling

We rushed to get it on the table
It was, as mentioned previously, a truly great evening - made more special by it being the WI centenary year.
