Membership Registration

Group Host: Vicky Evans

1. How long have you been a member of Pimm’s & Needles and why did you want to host a group? I worked with a member from another group and she told me about Pimms and Needles so I joined in 2019. It sounded perfect- and it is, I love the variety of topics and crafts, I am hooked and love the benefits of taking time out to do something for me. I see how other members benefit from this monthly “tonic” and really enjoy the feeling of supporting other women.

2. What do you like best about the groups? I love the craft sessions such as felt baubles and fused glass. Anything creative.

3. What do you generally dislike? I don’t have many dislikes but I’m not that keen on grey skies. Give me sunshine, even on a cold day.

4. What would be your perfect day? This leads on to my perfect day, seaside holidays, on warm summer day. Walking bare foot through the shallows and beach combing for treasure, AKA shells and pebbles.

5. What sweet treat do you love? I have a very sweet tooth and love ice cream sundaes! With all the extras!

6. Your favourite Pimm’s & Needles activity that you have done before? I always love the creative sessions, but really enjoyed our Burlesque workshop, it was so much fun!

7. Interesting or little known fact about you? Some of you may know that I grew up in Australia. But you you are not likely to know I sang in the school choir at the Sydney opera house. Seems a lifetime ago now!
