Introduction and Welcome

 hosted by Merseyside Embroiderers’ Guild

Saturday 24th April 2021

We hope you enjoy the day. As this is the first time NW Regional Day has been held online we thought we would explain what will happen. The day is in two parts:

  1. On our MEG website there is a dedicated page, with a drop down menu, titled NW Regional Day 2021. You must register here to take part in all the fun of the day. After you have registered you will find instructions on how to pay. Payment is £7 per person plus the cost of raffle tickets – please note you can only buy these at registration. When we receive your payment we will send you a password which will enable you to access the Raffle Page , Trader’s Den and to enter the Aurifil and Rose Bowl competitions.  Full Competition Rules and Guidelines are available on the site.
  2. We also have a full Programme of Events on Zoom. The Zoom events include talks from our two inspirational speakers: Linda Miller, the acclaimed Creative Machine Embroidery artist, and Michele Carragher who, among her other attributes, is the Principal Embroiderer for Game of Thrones. She specialises in hand embroidery and surface embellishment.
  3. While you are here we would like you to vote for your choice of theme for NW Regional Day 2023 Rose Bowl Competition. The choices are- 1.Childhood Holidays, 2. Whatever the Weather, 3.Over Land & Sea, 4. In Good Shape, 5. Historic Towns, 6. Masquerade. Please email Hilary secretary@megonline.co.uk with your choice of theme. Your help would be appreciated.
