“From Painting to Stitch” Christmas 2021 competition

Each member of Merseyside Expressive Stitchers group sent randomly 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 a 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
