West Country Embroiderers now in their 44th year have 1000 members in over 30 Groups from Penzance to the New Forest.
The annual Craft4Crafters Embroidery Competition is open to all WCE Members. This years’ challenge is to make a 6" square tile on a soft felt backing using 'The Arts and Crafts Movement' as their inspiration. The winner will be chosen by the public visiting the show.
Members from the WCE Devon Groups will show a selection of their work covering a wide range of embroidery and textile related techniques. These will range from pictures and wall hangings to bags, boxes, jewellery and many other artistic items.
There will also be a small display from our two Children's groups.
Throughout the 3 days of the show we shall have on going demonstrations on our stand from 10am - 4pm. These will be given by some of our members in both hand stitching and machine embroidery and also the use of mixed media in our textile work.
Our Children's Workshops will be on the Saturday only and for children aged 8 - 12 years. These will be FREE and all necessary requirements will be provided for each child.
The morning session from 10.30am to 12.30am is titled 'Flights of Fancy' and involves making birds!
The afternoon session is from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and will be a 'Fish Wall hanging'.
