At their last two craft group meetings Burgess Hill Martlets WI have been making felt Christmas decorations and hanging ornaments for their Christmas trees.

The felt Christmas decorations proved very popular and, led by Diane Rabson, the group made snowmen, Christmas stars and personalised Christmas stockings. Gill Sansom took the lead on the hanging ornaments and these were decorated with beads, sequins etc. Everyone had great fun making them.

The selection shown in the photograph gives an idea of the Christmas items this group produced. Their 2015 programme includes, knitted lace, patchwork and home made cards

This craft group is part of the main Burgess Hill Martlets WI, a lively group which now numbers about seventy five members and meets at 8.00p.m on the first Tuesday of every month, with the exception of January. Visitors and potential members are always welcome.
