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, President
