REGIONAL CHALLENGES

Every year we like to stimulate our Branches with friendly competitions and challenges to keep them active and focussed.  Any member of our Region is invited to enter the competitions.

The first competition set annually is The North West Regional Broderers’ Cup Competition which is judged every year by the regional members at the AGM in October.  This particular competition is only open to the branch that hosts the Annual Regional Day that year and part of the winner’s prize is to have their piece/design on the cover of the annual Journal which is accessible to all members of our Regional Branches.

Our second competition set annually is The Rose Bowl Competition, which is presented to the winner of the theme voted by members at the Regional Day.  The winner receives gift vouchers by the Host Branch of Regional Day and certificates are awarded by the Regional Committee.  The theme for 2018 is “Our Beautiful Northwest”.

Finally, our third competition is the Aurifil Competition and awards three prizes for work that is stitched using (some) of their threads.  Usually this competition is judged by external judges.  Certificates are awarded by the Regional Committee.

Regional Day 2018 is on Saturday 21st April at Wellington Park Hotel and Conference Centre, Burlington Gardens, Church Road, Leyland, Lancs PR25 3AB.
