Regional Day competition "Inspiration and Ideas"

Carolyn Merry is organising the Competition this year - here is her message to all members -

Happy New Year to everyone,
As we take down decorations, avoid holiday adverts and try to keep resolutions please think about making an entry for the Members Competition on Regional Day May 13th 2018 at The Becket School, West Bridgford.

As we all start to pick up our usual routines can you find a space to begin or complete something for inclusion in this event? I do hope so.

Entries by groups or individuals are welcome, please let me know if a group entry is planned (so we can ensure suitable prizes). Entries from Young Embroiderers would be very welcome too.

We have been asked to clarify the criteria for the judging of the Regional Day Members’ Competition. This competition is
traditionally judged by the Speaker of the Day and the Representative from HQ, with the Regional Chair overseeing

No criteria has ever been set down for this Competition other than a response to the title given. The amount of
‘embroidery’ within a piece and what that ‘embroidery’ is has always been up to a member’s interpretation.
Contemporary textile art now covers a vast range of techniques and is not necessarily all stitchery.

Good design and impact also have to be taken into account.

The ‘Inspiration and Ideas’ for the Competition written by Carolyn Merry is only that. It is up to members to choose
whether they follow these or take their own route to a piece of work. These suggestions are not referred to by the ju
To involve members more it has been decided by the Regional Committee to revise the three prizes awarded to:
First. Highly Commended. Members’ Choice.


Please get in touch if any further information is required.
