The meeting was well attended considering it is January and the weather more conducive to staying in the warm and dry
Our chairlady Glenda did a demonstation of wiring sugar flowers into sprays
She started with some advice on how to recognise the gauge wire to use for different flowers and showing the various ways that flowers and foliage can be made on the wire.
Then went on to wire four of the most popular shaped sprays . A crescent , a shower , a hogarth curve
( otherwise known as a sloppy S shape), and a conical posy.
With plenty of questions from the members it was a very pleasant evening
For some members it was all new to them for others they had seen it all before but agreed it was good to have a reminder .
The speaker who was originally booked to do this dem is not able to do it now but we are very fortunate that club members Jean and Robert have offered to step into the breach and show us how they are made.
This is no small undertaking so we are very gratefull to them both .
