Back in the spring, the West Sussex Federation Art & Craft Sub-Committee announced this year’s County Craft Competition. As 2019 is West Sussex Federation’s Centenary Year – the competition had a centenary theme.
Members were asked to use the county flower of Sussex the ‘Round-headed Rampion’ – a flower also known as the ‘Pride of Sussex’, as shown on the Federation’s centenary badge, as inspiration….. and produce an item of craft in any medium.
Three members of Bognor Regis WI took up the challenge and produced three completely different and beautiful entries.
All the items submitted by West Sussex members were pre-judged at North Lodge by an independent judge from outside our Federation. All the items were displayed at the WSFWI Annual Meeting in October and the results of the competition were announced.
Our members did exceptionally well…
Barbara F was awarded 1st Place with her 3d Textile Rampion, and she was presented with the Silver Plate at the Annual meeting, which she will have on loan for the year.
June S was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ for her curved glass picture
Jan A was awarded ‘Commended’ for her framed stitched picture of the Downs
Congratulations to all of them, your fellow Bognor Regis WI members are very proud of you!
