Over the next few weeks I'll be bringing you pictures and highlights from all of the events we have held at MODO! Since the start of term we've held a whole host of meetings, including our massively well attended Introductory Meeting, Model Auditions (where 65 gorgeous people joined us), our first Designer's Meeting and PR Meeting, not to mention the success of our Fresher's Fair where 600 people signed up to our mailing list, thanks guys!
On October 12th we held our very first Give It A Go (GIAG) event of the year, Ninja Crochet! Eighteen people came to learn beginners crochet and by the end of the class almost everyone was able to complete their first crochet project, a ninja!
It was very informal and everyone had a really good time, including Ruth Thompson, who made this amazing ninja!
On Thursday 14th we held our very first blog meeting for the year;
From left: Ikhlas, Aneliese, Saffron, Marta, Serena and Rachel (and I'm the one taking the photo!)
The meeting was great fun and very productive, I think we're all very excited about what this blog has to provide you with over the year.
Monday lunchtime (19th) brought Craft Circle, a new addition to the MODO calendar, a knitting/sewing/whatever circle complete with lunch, tea and cake. All are welcome to come, have a gossip, and get to know other MODO members (for free!!) I took this photo after most people had left (hence everyone having their coats on) so sorry to those who I missed!
On Monday evening we held the second of our series of sewing classes. In this class everyone was invited to learn basic embroidery, machine sewing and hand finishing skills in production of a strawberry shaped pin cushion.
Here's my strawberry, which, considering I haven't sewn in about 5 years, I must say I'm pretty proud of!!
