Margaret Oppen Competition 2017

Our next Margaret Oppen competition will be held in 2017.  This competition aims to encourage original design and excellence in technique in all forms of  embroidery.

The Guild will be celebrating its 60th (diamond) anniversary next year, and, in recognition of this, the Management Committee has chosen as the theme for the competition:      DIAMONDS AND OTHER TREASURES 


As for last year's competition, there will be 3 entry categories: Traditional Embroidery, Contemporary Embroidery, and Tutors and Past Winners.

The winners will be announced at a gala opening on 22 September 2017. The competition rules will be the same as for 2015, and more details will be published in the next few months. However we are hoping that this advance notice will stimulate you to generate some ideas and start planning an entry, as it would be great to have  a strong response in our anniversary year.
