Everyone received a kit of red, black and green wool, a felting needle, sponge block to work on and a pin to secure the finished poppy.

Sue demonstrated the basic method of felting and everyone was soon busy with wool and needle and a lot of stabbing to ensure they created a poppy shape.

It proved to be an enjoyable evening, with lots og laughter and chatter along the way.
