Embroidery Challenges

Merseyside Embroiderers Guild holds three embroidery competitions during the year. These are-

  • the Colour Competition which is judged in May by the guest Speaker or by public vote. The prize is the Edna Billison Glass Trophy and a monetary gift voucher.
  • the Traditional Embroidery Competition wich is judged by public vote at our MEG Christmas Party. The prize is a monetary gift voucher.
  • Chair’s Challenge, which has a different theme each year, chosen by the current MEG Chair, and it is judged by MEG Chair at the October AGM. The prize is a monetary gift voucher.

Occasionally there are HQ EG Challenges and embroidery competitions, and also opportunities to learn new techniques at home.
