The weather might still be balmy and woolly jumpers might still be in storage but our September meeting had a distinctly Christmas feel to it. As WI members we like to be well prepared for the festive season so we kicked off by making a rather jolly Father Christmas cake topper out of sugar paste.

Our expert teacher for the evening was former North Swindon WI member Barbara who is an experienced sugar crafter and has taught the subject for many years.

She showed us step by step how to make our Santa faces and we were all rather chuffed with our end results.Every face was a little different which made them all quite unique. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some of us were very keen to carry on practising their newly discovered skill.
