Creative Needlework


All hand embroidery disciplines are welcome in the Creative Needlework section. Whether an original work or from a kit, it doesn’t matter. Anyone can enter, young or old, male or female.

Stumpwork, blackwork, whitework, goldwork, beadwork, cross stitch, crewel & ribbon embroidery, thread painting, hardanger and other drawn thread work, cutwork, smocking, needlepoint, lacework and embellishment using any combination of the myriad forms of hand embroidery can be employed for your unique work.

There is a special category for embroidery within a 6” hoop. This year’s theme is “PARTY”. It’s entirely up to you how you interpret “PARTY” as long as it is hand embroidered.

The only exception to the hand embroidered restriction is the cushion category. Your cushions may also be machine embroidered, patchwork, hand woven, silk painted, a combination of different disciplines ….anything.
