One of our own, Serena, has been a member of the Embroiderer's guild for 50 years and to celebrate she set us some challenges. We had to do some recycling. Serena has a habit of collecting calico bags from various car boot sales and recycling stores (usually from gin festivals!) so the challenge was to decorate one; she also brought some fabric from sample books and this was to be used however we wanted. Today was judging. We all voted for our favourites in the two categories and then Serena picked her favourite. Our prize... Spinning Jenny vouchers (a shop for stitchers in Grassington).
Here are the three winners.
And the other entries.
