Last week Renee and Hannah got their embroideries back from New Plymouth. They had entered the primary section of the National Embroidery conference, which was held in New Plymouth. Unfortunately it was a few weeks after we left town so we didn't get to see the exhibition, but the embroidery teachers, Glenys and Delwn, sent down a couple of exhibition programmes with photos of the entries.
Hannah got first in her section which she was very happy about, and also got a nice big cheque for her prize, which she was also happy about! Renee didn't place, but she did get first last year in the Taranaki exhibition, with her embroidered box.
We have been along to the Dunedin Guild and plan to join, the girls loved it and I don't mind an excuse to sit and stitch for a morning every now and then.
