Design Competition 2011

We would like to thank all the colleges and universities for their submissions this year. We had some great entries and it was interesting to see how each theme had been interpreted in a number of different ways. The winning entry was from Emily Smalley of Nottingham Trent University. Emily used traditional stitching methods combined with acrylic board to create a range of designs which could be adapted for soft furnishings or decorative wall panels. A snapshot of her entry can be found below and more of her work can be viewed on her own site:

We were also really pleased to receive some full size stitched entries from the students of Newcastle College. Helen, Heather and Danielle used the brief to create some very different designs and then stitch them for us. 

We wish all the students well in their future careers!
