Many years ago our past president, Mary Crichton, presented seminar members each with a packet of Scabiosa seeds, (the pincushion flower) and challenged us all to grow them and come back with a stitched version. This was the beginnings of our "Flower of the Year". Each year thereafter, members put names of flowers in a ballot box, and near the end of seminar, a name is drawn to be the Flower of the Year. All members are encouraged to stitch their version of the flower and enter them in competition at the Show and Share Exhibit at Seminar.
