Due to circumstances beyond our control this event will now be held on 24th July 2021 at The South of England Centre, Ardingly RH17 6TL. This regional day at Ardingly in July could be a bumper day. We would like to carry over this year’s branch competition ‘ A Game of Stitches’, as well as the Members competition from the Celebration of Stitch Day (what we used to call the Regional AGM), that is ‘A Decorated Initial’ and hold, as we have done in the past at Stitchfest, the branch showcase exhibition. So along with the traders, raffle, workshops and demonstrations etc, there will be lots to do and see.
The title for the Regional competition is ‘A Decorated initial’. It can be in any form of stitch (machine or hand), any medium and up to A4 in size. Even 3D if you are brave! These will be exhibited at Stitchfest – details above!
Celebration of Stitch day will be on Saturday September 25th 2021 and hosted by East Surrey Branch and details to follow
