The Exhibition is an integral part of the Embroiderers’ Great Escape and we encourage all participants to take part. We have set some criteria to avoid any confusion.

Traditional Work – Counted work of any kind.  This award, in memory of Elizabeth Ellett, recognises her passion and expertise in this style of embroidery.  Entries can be original, from a workshop or kit.

InnovativeOwn design and work of any kind.

Theme for 2024 –  Coffee and Cake Any kind of work in keeping with the Theme.

Each of these sections will be eligible for an award of $50.00 selected by one of the weekend’s tutors.

General Display – any work that does not fit into the above categories. This section will not be judged.

All four sections will be eligible for the Viewers’ Choice Award of $50.

All stitched work and all packaging material -which includes all outside and inside packaging – MUST be clearly labelled with your name.  Please do not use sellotape. It would be preferable if your work was contained within a padded fabric bag. A copy of the Exhibition Form  must be securely attached to the outside packaging or fabric bag.

If your work is not labelled correctly The Great Escape Committee will take no responsibility for your work and reserves the right to not open the packaging and your work will not be exhibited.

Work for the exhibition must have been finished within the last 12 months but may have been exhibited elsewhere.

Exhibition pieces are to be handed in to the Exhibition area of the Events Centre on the Friday evening between 5.00 – 5.15 pm or 6.30 – 7.00 pm.

Please be aware that your work may be photographed for the Embroiderers’ Great Escape Committee records and publicity.
