Here's what's happening this month at Gloucester Rd WI.

Craft A Suffolk Puff

At May's meeting we will be crafting Suffolk Puffs.
You can use these fabric creations individually to embellish other items or stitched several together to create a fabulous necklace or a colourful cushion cover. Have a look at our pinterest board and get inspired!

Material will be provided but if you have some scraps of your own that you'd like to use then bring them along.

Looking Ahead


Bring a Friend for a Local Brew

Last year's gin tasting proved very popular so at June's meeting we will be tasting some offerings from a local brewery based in East Bristol. We should have enough space to open this meeting to non-members so why not bring a friend?
(£5 visitor fee applies)

Skill Share

The skill share has been moved to the August meeting and we are still on the lookout for skills to share. Do you have something that you would be prepared to demonstrate or share with your fellow members? Perhaps you have a skilful friend? Drop us a line on - we'd love to hear from you!

Grow Off / Bake Off / Make Off

This year's grow off / bake off / make off will take place at our September meeting and the categories are as follows:

Grow - Biggest / Three of a Kind / Novelty
Bake - Cupcake / Muffin / Bread
Make - Home Brew / Floral Arrangement in a Teacup / Up-cycled Wearable Accessory

Each person can have three entries in total for the chance to win themselves a Gloucester Road WI rosette!



Cakes & Bakes at Meetings

We've been enjoying some delicious cakes at meetings so far this year. If you'd like to get baking then please don't forget to sign up to say what you're bringing along, or if you'd rather sample a slice then bring your money along to buy on the night.

Enamel Badges

We will have our enamel badges on sale at the next meeting. They are exclusively for members for £5 each - wear yours with pride!
