Summer Exhibition

As the nights draw in and autumn clothes come out of storage, July seems like a distant memory, but here are some pictures from the exhibition at our Summer Party to cheer you!

We brought in lots of work to share, including entries members had made for the Regional Day, work done as a result of day schools, and competition entries on the theme of "Animal, Vegetable or Mineral".

Competition Entries
Members were invited to bring along their work, either recent pieces or embroidery they had worked a while ago, and vote to decide the prize winner. There were so many talented entries across the whole range of embroidery:

This wonderful stumpwork knot garden and cockerel were brought in by Lyn, who I beleive went on to win the prize.

We also shared our embroidery from dayschools and members sessions over the past year:
