Susie Finlayson, vice-chair of the Roxburghshire federation, chair of the H&H commttee and member of Wiltondean WI, was the guest at the recent Midlem WI meeting.

Suzie’s main interest is embroidery and the task for Midlem members was to make a small floral picture.

As you will see from the photograph, loads of concentration was needed and all agreed it was a super night.

Susie is holding embroidery workshops throughout the year, which are all held at the Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick, though bespoke workshops can be arranged for groups of 4-8 people,

If you are interested, please contact her on 07878 290113.

The next meeting will be on May 8, when members will hear about the Blood Bikers. Competitions are a spring scene photo and a health bar.
