July Meeting – Tassel Making

We are pleased to be holding this meeting postponed from February (see poster below). Let’s celebrate our womanhood and tap into our sensual, sexy, risqué sides, and possibly giggle like schoolgirls, to make burlesque style tassels.  Bunny Lestrange will be giving us a tutorial and hopefully talking a little about the history of burlesque.

At all meetings

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month in the Crypt at St Peter’s Church, De Beauvoir, starting at 7.30pm.  Sisters take it in turns to serve delicious refreshments, including tea and cake, wine, and assorted snacks from the kitchen.  Meetings are free to members, or only £5 for guests (price includes tea/coffee and cake).  Come and join us for a chance to catch up with friends old and new.

Covid compliance notice

The DBWI are still asking for some precautions to be taken regarding Covid.  In line with guidance from the NFWI masks are optional but we encourage members and guests to wear one when in more crowded areas, such as queueing for refreshments.  We will continue to keep doors and windows open in the Crypt for ventilation.  Wash hands in the toilets and/or use sanitiser, which we will provide hand sanitiser if you cannot bring your own but please bring your own if you can.  All surfaces on tables and at the hatch will be wiped down with disinfectant before your arrival.  If you can do a lateral flow test before attending meetings and contact us if you develop symptoms after attending.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Parade

The Jubilee celebrations held on Friday 3rd June went really well. See a selection of photos below. Thank you to everyone who came along to help set up and march. It was a marvellous day and lots of fun was had.

Some of us also got together for some knitting to create a royal yarn bomb which was installed on top of a letter box.
