The Guild Annual Challenge

Each year a different design is offered to members, which they may work in their own way. There is freedom of choice, style, size, colour and complexity of technique.

Beginners may take it to their class to seek advice and guidance, the more experienced may use the opportunity to indulge their fantasies.

The completed pieces will be on show at the Lace Day/AGM in October.

This produces a fascinating array showing the great variety of techniques and the versatility of needle lace. Many members feel more encouraged to participate, as this is not a competition of judged work but a look into the interpretation of a given design.

You can change the size of the design but you must not delete any part.

Come on have a go. Maybe you have never thought of doing a similar design so it will be a CHALLENGE.
