At the Annual General Meeting of the Women’s Institutes of Northern Ireland, held recently at the King’s Hall, Balmoral, Mrs Beth Lindsay of Mosside WI received the Roe Valley Trophy for Bobbin Lace.
This competition is open to Full Circle Brooch holders only. To obtain a Full Circle Brooch award, WI members must have gained proficiency ribbons in 24 different crafts. Beth puts her breadth of knowledge and experience to very good use in helping many other Mosside members to reach Silver and Gold Spinning Wheel standard. It is due to her dedication that Mosside WI now has many able craftswomen who are keen to help beginners make good use of their talents.
