May 2013 Meeting AGM and Jewellery Workshop

May is when we hold our AGM.  It is our time to talk about what has happened in the last year and what we will do in the coming year. We will be voting on the next WI resolutions and electing new committee members. Only members can vote on new resolutions, so if you’re a member please come along to the meeting and have your say on the future of the group.
We will also be talking about the Save The High Street resolution, more information on the WI website here

Please read the briefing before voting on it.

After the official matters, we have a jewellery workshop run by Lily of Frilly by Lily!

Lily has grown her business from a small Portobello Road market stall and will be coming to talk to us and show us how to up-cycle jewellery. Bring along any odd earrings, broken jewellery and other bits you may have inherited and make something new from something old or broken. If you don’t have jewellery to bring Lilly will be providing materials for you to use.

November AGM


This month is the Shoreditch Sisters Annual General Meeting where we will be holding in house committee elections as well as re-electing the roles of president, secretary and treasurer. If you would like to put yourself up for committee then please e-mail to notify your interest.

In order to be involved in voting this month you must have paid your 2010 subscription fees, so please bring along the sum of £29.50 cash or cheque on the night and we can sign you up. Becoming a member entitles you to free meetings as well as invitations to join the other sub groups including our fortnightly sewing circle, campaigns committee and our knitting club that is to be launched in January, as well as other group outings and activities.


Sunday December 13th will be the Shoreditch Sisters WI Christmas fete and fundraiser! So to get you into the festive spirit we will have hot apple spiced cider, mulled wine and homemade mince pies as we take this opportunity to discuss and plan the event as well as sign up volunteers to help on the day. We will need extra hands in baking for both our WI produce stall and the Viva Cake tea room as well as anyone who would like to run a handi-craft station or get involved with general planning and helping out. We really will need all hands on deck to make sure it’s a success in order to raise as much funds as possible to ensure we have an amazing programme of events for 2010!
