Pictured: Members and guests of Roebuck WI show off their brand new scarves!
Roebuck WI (Kingston Area) held a ROSE Session on SILK SCARF DYEING at the home of a WI Member. All scarves, dye and equipment were provided. Each attendee dyed at least one scarf – and several did more! Many laughs were shared among this very enthusiastic group and everyone left with a new skill and, of course, a new scarf! One of the attendees ended up teaching this skill to members of her church choir who all made scarves to wear at their concert. This was a craft originally learned from another WI Branch in Leeds-Grenville District - talk about a skill being paid forward! This ROSE Session also helped to raise the profile of WI in the neighbourhood.
