Middlesex Federation of Women’s Institutes set its member WIs the challenge of creating a pennant to form part of a collective MFWI string of bunting made up on one pennant for each WI. The Alexandra set to! There was no doubt we would not incorporate an image of our iconic namesake, Alexandra Palace. President Emma Watson interpreted the south elevation as a simple ‘stitchable’ diagram. Committee member Ching Smith then began the task of stitching the palace and our name, while members created cute ‘micro-knitting’ and woollen flowers to add a flvour of what the WI is all about. We are now looking foward to seeing the completed bunting: stay tuned for an update!
