Embroiderers' Guild at the knitting & stitching show 2011

 The Embroiderers Guild members Exhibition had a good space at the Knit& Stitch Show in the forecourt of Alexandra’s Palace. There was a lot to see – it took 16 photographs to fit in all the exhibits on the walls. There were several ‘winners’ and ‘commendeds’.Below is one of my favourites. It is extremely clever and unusual but was a little difficult to see inside a cabinet.

This was my entry!
