Little Marlow & Well End Women’s Institute Summer Exhibition

Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild President Fiona Rivaz recently attended the Little Marlow and Well End Women’s Institute’s Summer Exhibition. Read on to hear about Fiona’s experience of this event and the ongoing generosity of this organisation for which we are so grateful.
‘It was a great honour to be invited to the Little Marlow and Well End WI Summer Exhibition and see the many beautiful items created by their members.  The competition classes included cookery, poetry, flower arranging, photography and of course knitting/crochet.  External judges provided feedback and a prize was given to the winner of each class with a magnificent cup being presented to the Victor Ludorum.  All entries to the hat competition have been donated to QMCG and I was able to take those, along with some blankets and other items, home with me.  The WI members have been producing items for QMCG since at least the 1980s, they used to be part of Jocelyn Bailey’s group.  I thanked the group for their on-going support and generosity and told them the dates for View Day, they hope to send a contingent to the Palace as they do every year.’

The Guild in Scotland

Scottish President Lynn Benge has been extremely busy creating absolutely beautiful blankets and even a hot water bottle cover from the 335 pieces of bunting and squares that were knitted at Loch Ness Knit Fest back in October 2017. What a great achievement! Many thanks to Lynn and Knit Fest knitters for all their hard work supporting Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild.

Festive Fundraising!

We held our, now annual, Christmas Wreath Making Workshop for our Guild friends and supporters with a total of 13 wreaths being made in a morning and aftenoon session under the wonderful tutelage of gifted florist Fiona Wright (who helps every year at Packing Week). Such a fun day away from the pre-Christmas frenzy and everyone has a beautiful wreath to take home for their own front door. From what everyone donated to take part we raised £345 to buy much needed items for next year’s Packing Week!

Linda Thompson, Vice Chairman
