The Village Hall was full for our March meeting which was due in part to the attendance of more new members and visitors and we look forward to even more in the future. We have a team for the forthcoming GFWI Quiz so they must get their brains into gear for that, our monthly Coffee Morning at The Roastery is coming up soon and we are still collecting books and jigsaw puzzles for the Centenary Village Show at Cirencester Park in July. Planning our exhibit for the Centenary Exhibition at the Cathedral in October has started and as the Group Party, also in October, has a 1960s theme hopefully some of us may still have something from that era hiding in our wardrobes! We welcomed Tracey from Dixie Dot Crafts in Kingsway with her craft demonstration but that was only a small part of her talk. After always being told at school that she was no good at sewing and hating it, some time later she began to really enjoy it, as well as other crafts she tried. Tracey told us about the many ups and downs in her life, which finally led to running her own successful craft shop. She likes to get involved with the local community and wants to nurture the creative side of children and adults and holds craft workshops at her premises in Kingsway. Some of her classes include pottery painting, decopatch (that’s sticking little pieces of decorative paper onto anything from boxes to giraffes), box frames, wood art, sewing and crochet. She demonstrated some block printing onto a tea towel which is yet another of the crafts she teaches. This was a very entertaining talk which is sure to encourage some people to take up one of her crafts. Our speaker for April will be Reverend Nicholas Henderson with his second talk entitled Fulfilment & Farce about Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleeves, two of Henry VIII’s forgotten wives. We had already heard his first talk about another two wives when we learned many fascinating facts so this is sure to be just as amusing and entertaining. Other talks coming up include Internet dating and writing a book, Llanthony Secunda Reformation and something called Tax, Care and Toyboys! If any of these sound interesting then why not come along? We meet at Quedgeley Village Hall on the second Wednesday of every month
