  • "I have a picture of myself sitting on my mother's knee at a Wyman Wl meeting, and I must have been about
    three. The QWI and I are the same age; when I was 70 I compiled and printed a songbook for the Wl; this
    year I chose to give prizes for three handicraft competitions: knitting for first time entrants, a maple leaf quilt
    block, and a sampler. I have a sampler made by my great grandmother — we must save the art of our heritage."
