On behalf of the group, I want to congratulate Judy, Deena and Linda who recently entered the 2021 Embroiderers’ Guild Challenges.
Judy entered the Beryl Dean Award for hand stitching and her beautiful box was Commended. Your beadwork is amazing Judy and we look forward to seeing it in the future
‘Kiss, Clasp, Crown’ by Deena has been Highly Commended for the Artistic Director’s Award for Innovation. The figure Deena drew onto this piece is based on a reliquary in the British Museum. Drawn on an old calico shopping bag then embroidered and quilted into and combined with Victorian mourning clothes too shattered to repair hand painted, beaded and mounted onto an antique purse frame.
Linda entered the Exquisite Containers category. Although she did not receive an award I am sure you will agree with me that this is a “exquisite container”. I love the 3D butterfly, dragonfly and flowers. It must have taken you hours to do and I look forward to seeing it soon.
