The Competition

We're really hoping that you will enter a quilt or embroidery piece into the Open Competition we are holding at the British Quilt and Stitch Village in 2016. There are lots of great prizes to be won from our very generous sponsors. Anyone can enter, whatever your experience or ability. You certainly don't have to be an expert, and there are categories for small and large pieces of work. There's a children's category too, in both the quilting and embroidery sections. Plus there's a Special Theme category: 'Fire & Flame'. Perhaps an entry into the show in 2016 will be a new beginning for you, too? We want everyone to feel that they can have a go, and every entry is welcome and will be proudly displayed.
