Young Quilters / Textile Artists Competition 2019
This year, in addition to the open quilt competitions, we are re-launching the Young Quilters / Textile Artists Competition.
This category was originally inspired by members of the UK Quilters United Facebook forum who often show work that their children and grandchildren have been creating. We tried this category a few years ago but had minimal interest. This year the category has been promoted to the UKQU Facebook group, the Quilters Guild Young Quilters and Youngish Quilters and the Embroiderers Guild Young Embroiderers.
This competition in not limited to quilts but can include 3D, wearable or any other needlework techniques. First, second and third prizes are generously supplied by Lewis and Irene.
It is free to enter and under 16’s get free admission to the show if they are accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket.
We really hope this competition will be a success.
The Competition Deadline is 1st July 2019.
