In honour of our Federation Centenary in 2019, we have a lovely range of items for you to buy to help remember the occasion!
Cornish maker Poppy Treffry has been commissioned to design a commemorative mug and tea towel especially for us! Poppy is known for her quirky designs, and her products are handmade in Cornwall, but she is known throughout the UK and even in the US – so we thought she’d be perfect for us!
Both the tea towel and mug feature our ‘Inspiring Women’ tagline, along with some lovely cakes, bunting and a cheeky Cornish chough. The fine bone china mug measures 9cm in height and is dishwasher safe. It comes in a simple brown box. As well as the design you can see here (front and back), there is also some surprise bunting decorating the inside of the mug!
The tea towel measures 80cm(h) x 50(w)cm, is made from 100% unbleached cotton and is screen printed in Cornwall, based on Poppy’s machine embroidered design. It is machine washable.
The mug sells for £9.50 and the tea towel for £6. But why not treat yourself to both for a discounted price of £15? These are truly special items!
We also have available a centenary badge. Wear it with pride! This enamelled badge has a polished chrome finish and a clutch fastener. (£5)
Why not add a commemorative spoon to your collection? This is definitely something to cherish. Our spoon is silver-plated with an enamelled emblem, and comes individually boxed. (£5)
Have a bit of fun with a CFWI Centenary temporary tattoo! It’s easy to apply with a damp cloth and will last about 3-4 days (less time if you don’t mind some vigorous scrubbing!). The tattoo measures about 42mm across. (£1)
A celebration wouldn’t be a celebration without a glass of something to toast with! We have arranged for some special centenary wine from Bosue Vineyard. Bosue is an award-winning family-run vineyard near St Austell. Our wine is a fresh white wine, described as “a fine balanced easy drinking wine.” Sounds delicious! (£10)
If you’re going to be drinking our centenary wine, you’ll need a coaster for your wine glass! We have some lovely silver aluminium coasters available with our centenary logo on them. The coasters have a felt backing, so no damage to your tables. (£4.50)
And, finally, we have a handy centenary pen. This is a stainless steel ballpoint pen with our logo imprinted on the side of the barrel. Each pen comes in an individual plastic tube. (£5)
Your WI Secretary has an order form for all of the above items, so please see her to place your orders. Items will be available to be picked up from Chy Noweth an Conteth in January (other delivery arrangements may be available.)
