It's been a little bit quieter at MODO this week, but still filled with lots of exciting news!
On Thursday we held the second of our designer's meetings. If you're thinking about designing for MODO now is the time to get in contact with us, and start seriously planning your collection. Over the next couple of meetings we'll be meeting and choosing our models, and beginning to put our moodboards together - start collecting pictures now!
Monday saw the Emergency General Meeting unanimously elect Aminat as our new treasurer. Aminat has been tirelessly doing this job for months now, and it's great to see her finally recognized by the Union and the rest of the society. Congratulations to her!
The lunchtime craft circle continued this week, we had a nice gossip and all got lots of knitting done - Hooray!
Tuesday saw a double booking in terms of MODO events, firstly we held the second of our Give it a Go classes - Beginner's Knitting! This class was a sell out for the second year running, and will almost certainly go in the MODO books now as an annual event. Tube strikes on the day meant that not everyone was able to attend, but those that did had a great time.
I have to say I felt very proud to get all of these people knitting in 2 hours! The class was a resounding success; not only did we make it through all of the skills I'd planned to discuss, we even had time to talk about some more advanced techniques. MODO now have a number of spare knitting needles and balls of yarn, come along to Craft Circle every Monday 1-2pm in Bloomsbury Rehearsal Room and borrow some needles and yarn yourself!
Tuesday evening also saw the first of our Model Workshops. This session aimed to help our newly selected models improve their skills and more specifically improve their walk. As we have so many former models on the MODO committee this year we were able to offer a wide range of advice, and as these pictures show, fun was had by all.
That's all for this week, as it's reading week next week you won't be hearing from me until the week after. Have a lovely mid-semester break, and see you soon!
