THREE CONTEST CATEGORIES:New Year, New You - Choose any vintage embroidery pattern that you feel captures the meaning and spirit of one of your new year's resolutions or something important that you want to accomplish this year.
New Year, New Stitches- This category is for specifically for showing off your fancy stitches! "Fancy stitches" means (1) using fill stitches so there is hardly any bare/exposed fabric inside your embroidery AND/OR (2) learning and using a variety of new stitches in your embroidery. You may use any vintage embroidery pattern of your choice.
New Year, New/Old Mixed Media with Stitches - This category is specifically for combining "media" with any vintage embroidery pattern of your choice. Entries in this category should have a significant amount of mixed media incorporated into their embroidery. Examples of "media" to add to your embroidery include sequins, buttons, home improvement hardware, fabric, decorative papers, random and surprising found objects, etc.... You may use any vintage embroidery pattern of your choice.
We have 8 brand new, awesome prize sponsors! There are prizes for the three category winners and plenty of door prizes too!
