The Buns & Roses committee is made up of several members. The role of the committee is to organise meetings and workshops, take care of the behind-the-scenes running of a WI group, keep up to date with current affairs and campaigns and present information to the group each month.


Emma joined the committee in 2015 and is now proud to be President. Interested in craft  for years, Emma joined Buns & Roses to meet like-minded women. Emma's crafty side comes from her Mum and Gran. Emma's Gran still knits most days for various charities and raffles. Emma loves being involved with Buns & Roses, encouraging women of all ages to enjoy lots of crafty activities and the supportive female community that the group creates. When not at Buns & Roses, Emma splits the rest of her time between a busy job at a Solicitors, baking, gardening and attempting to crochet!


Lauren joined the committee in 2014 and is our MCS rep. Lauren is an ecologist and spends most of her time searching for bats, newts and badgers and attempting to identify grass species. When she's not at work Lauren enjoys being outside walking, cycling and bird watching. When not behind her binoculars Lauren can be found either at a pub quiz, at the gym or watching trashy American TV shows with her cat.


Helen joined the committee in 2015 and is now our resident Treasurer. Handily working in finance, Helen keeps our books in order. When not working Helen can be found knitting and crocheting. 


Caroline joined the committee in 2015 and is a Buns & Roses general helper.  She currently works in the NHS in administration.  When not at work she enjoys dancing, card making, general crafting (including hoarding anything useful that might be able to be used again), trying new things (then getting bored when something new comes along), cinema, music, walking and is trying baking!  She joined Buns & Roses as she recently moved to Leeds in order to meet people with similar interests, improve her crafting skills and to learn new things. 


Stephanie First of her Name, Mother of Kittens, Slayer of Prosecco, Born of Sheffield - and guess what a huge Game of Thrones fan. Good at talking too much, average at crochet and poor at controlling her budgeting! ?? Stephanie is the resident secretary here at Buns & Roses, she is super organised and keeps our President in check! Stephanie is a gifted crafter who often runs meetings and workshops for us. When it comes to crafting Stephanie's moto is 'more is more'!
