Summer Competition 13 July 2015 - Inspired by the Portfolios

Last September we had an inspiring meeting where we were able to look at a collection of Guild Portfolios.

Lots of us took photographs, some sketched and we were all inspired.

The theme for our summer competition is 'Inspired by the Portfolios' and it's nearly here so if you haven't already got your entry ready it's time to start. here's a bit of a reminder of what we saw.

Remember this is not about copying a design and you can interrupt the theme however you like.

 Here's a bit of a reminder of what we saw last September:-

If you haven't entered before or for a long time it is a great chance to show your work to fellow members. The theme can be interpreted as widely as you like and knowing our members this will bring in a very wide range of work.

It might be a piece you have had tucked away for years or an item you have created especially for this competition. Any work is accepted, a long as it has some stitching - hand or machine; it can be a framed picture or a 3D extravaganza, a cushion or a bag.   

Voting is simple - dishes will be provided and a coin of any value counts as one vote (and swells our funds). Members can vote as many times as they wish and the entry with the most coins is announced during the meeting and the cup is handed over.
