The Alexandra Women’s Institute once again held a stall at newly-renamed local festival It’s A Wonderful Muswell on Saturday 7 December 2019.
We were grateful again to have a warm inside stall within the beautiful St James Church in Muswell Hill. We had another successful day selling a variety of cakes, biscuits, Christmas crafts and knitted goods including hedgehogs and rag wreaths. Thank you to our members who made and baked items to sell, helped on the day, or simply called into say hello! It was also lovely to greet a couple of our former members and speakers: please continue to keep in touch… and come back when life allows, even if it’s only for the odd meeting which is of interest!
Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising by buying something!
Here are some photos of us on the day.
A note on Morsbags…
A few of our lucky customers were given a Morsbag (see image above) lovingly made by our President Maggie. Morsbags are fabric bags made from re-used fabric and given away to promote use of alternatives to plastic bags.
