35th Warming Day Aargau

Tips and tricks on crafts are exchanged at the warming days. Photo: Christine Lehni

Attracted by the attractive brochure, 30 women registered for the Wärchtag Aargau. Before the welcome and the introduction by the local priest, there was already a cheerful chat over coffee, tea and pastries, a reunion here and there.

In the warming rooms, arm warmers were felted from the finest wool-silk material, ironing bags were crocheted, an original bag and utensilos were sewn from old "hunger cloths" and thus the current theme of upcycling was applied. In the card course, the participants benefited from the material provided for the "embossing" technique (stamping technique). In the concrete pouring, several kilos of concrete were mixed and poured into various vessels, which can be creatively decorated after hardening. In only 2 x 2 ½ hours of time to work, great sales products for upcoming bazaars were created.

Culinary we were spoiled with Gschwellti, cheese and salad, the traditional lunch at the Wärchtage in Aargau, in addition a refreshing berry dessert was served. Throughout the day there was a happy atmosphere and the women exchanged tips and ideas from the bazaar groups.

Many thanks to the course instructors who shared their ideas and to the host community who treated us to a wonderful cake buffet at the end.

Hope thanks to your support
