Flower of the Year

Many years ago our past president, Mary-E. 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.  

For 2014, the Flower of the Year is the Daisy

So, look at your seed catalogs, check the Internet, and start stitching! 

Over the years these flowers have been chosen as Flower of the Year:

Scabiosa - 1998
Peony - 1999
Columbine - 2000 (Chosen for the Columbine High disaster
Rose - 2001
