Little did I realise, over 35 years ago, when I joined Knockvennie Rural that one day I would have the honour and privilege to be elected Chairman of SWRI. I am looking forward to the next three years at a time when we are also planning for our centenary in 2017. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members who have sent congratulations and good wishes, they are much appreciated.
There will be eight non strenuous games. No prior information about the games will be issued. Spectatorís admission will be £3.00 including tea & a biscuit. Parking is available.
A number of short videos highlighting some of the entries in SWRI Handcrafts & Housewives Conference 11 and 12 September 2013 Elgin are available to view on the SWRI YouTube channel.
More short videos will be available shortly.
Once again we had a very successful time at Gardening Scotland. The weather remained fine throughout the weekend and that always helps the atmosphere. We had a super large stand near the floral art and the bonsai. There was a variety of demonstrations. On the first day Midlothian ladies demonstrated Christmas Clowns, Victorian Thimble Cases and Card making. On Saturday, Lanarkshire demonstrated Ribbon Flower Pictures, Temari balls and Flower Fairies. Finally on the Sunday, SCWP members did Beadwork and Pancake making. These were all popular and many patterns were requested. Final decisions will be made in the very near future with regard to next yearís competitions to allow you plenty of time to prepare and have eliminations where necessary.
Worship the sun or toast the rain Ė a tea party or a garden party is a great way to celebrate the summer.
