Travelling Books 2013
Members Challenge - the theme for this was 'Water' (rivers, canals, rain, ice, puddles, sea, lakes anything associated with the water e.g. flowers, boats, fish, wildlife, people....) and the maximum size was A4.
There were 23 entries with each one being given a number to enable members to select their favourite to vote for. This was very difficult due to the wonderful variety and exceptional quality of the work exhibited. ( Lots of opportunity for mini workshops with such talented members).
The first prize was 1 years membership of the Embroiderers Guild with second and third prizes of books.
Once the votes were counted there was a tie for first prize so Terry Murphy CEO kindly contributed another 1 year free membership.
The joint winners were 673 (Rita Duncan) and 692(Sue Morgan) and the runner up 874 (Pam Jones).
Travelling Books Project
This 6 month project has reached its conclusion with a display of the books at the September AGM.
Throughout this has generated great interest and enthusiasm from those involved as well as other members who wished they had signed up. The books are great talking points with each new page being a surprise as well as a work of art.
Just a glimpse of some of the pages created
There will be another opportunity to look at the books at the members meeting in January.
