Pinwherry WRI February meeting

Mrs Wyllie welcomed members to the February meeting of Pinwherry WRI on Monday 8th February.

Minutes were read and approved and after business was discussed, Mrs Wyllie introduced Mandy McLaughlan and her friend Rona.

Mandy showed us a collection of articles she had crocheted from table centres to blankets in all kinds of wool and thread. Mandy and Rona then tried to teach members to crochet, lots of our members could already do it but the others enjoyed learning and had something to show. A vote of thanks was given by Marie McNulty.
