“From Painting to Stitch” Christmas 2021 competition

Each member of Merseyside Expressive Stitchers’ Group was randomly sent a postcard with a famous painting.

The idea was to interpret the painting into a textile piece using any technique they wished.

The embroidery could take any form- an analysis of the colours seen in the painting, or some of the shapes, or an interpretation of the work as a whole.

Due to unforeseen circumstances (a tree falling in high wind!) the competition was not judged until our January 2022 meeting. Everyone who attended on the day voted for their favourite.

Winners- 1st Prize, Diane Moore 

                     2nd Prize, Ann Thyer

                     3rd Prize, Gill Roberts
