What was the Challenge?
The challenge was to produce a piece of work based on one of the following:
- Inspired by Nature
- Inspired by Words
- Inspired by People
- Inspired by Places or Architecture
- Inspired by Art
Any textile technique could be used e.g. Patchwork, Quilting, Hand or Machine Embroidery, Felting etc.
A £5 admission fee was charged. For this entrants were given a choice of one of the following (fabrics and supplies donated by Reticule):
- A fat quarter of fabric from a selection of the Fabric Freedom Prefect Palette range
- A bag of merino wool tops
- A selection of embroidery threads
At least 50% of what was chosen had to be used in the final piece of work. Any other threads, fabric, beads etc. could be added.
We have raised £6000 over the two challenges in aid of Cancer Care and Great North Air Ambulance!
Here’s a small sample of the wonderful work entered:
