Competition successes 2013

Chichester Embroiderers were successful in two competitions

The South East Regional Stitchfest Challenge – WON by Chichester Embroiderers Guild

Chichester Embroiderer’s Guild has won the South East region challenge cup for the third successive time. This year the entries were judged at a Stitchfest in Ardingly. The challenge was to produce a book using various embroidery techniques. Chichester’s winning entry was a stitch reference manual using the local area as its design source. Over 50 members contributed items for the book and no entry was rejected – everything was used. Other members joined in the group sessions to stitch the page edgings and make the spines. The book is a truly collaborative effort .
