Miss Pitchy Patchy, dressed in elegant 1940's clothes, talked of women during WW2 who were expected to look feminine when everything was rationed or unavailable and whose inventive ways meant they still looked glamorous. They used gravy browning and drew seams on their legs for stockings, recycled everything (everyone had a sewing machine) and always wore red lipstick.

At our March meeting we tried out crafts demonstrated by our members: balloon painting, calligraphy, watercolours, book craft and many more.  Great fun.

Sandy Auden's “Beeswax makes, candles and clay jewellery” talk is in April.
