Madeira Embroidery Competition Winners 2019

This year we challenged you to create an embroidered piece of work inspired by Royalty. Whether inspired by a recent Royal occasion; hundreds of years of history; looking to foreign lands or delving much further back to ancient Egypt we asked you to create a rich tableaux in stitches. All entries were displayed and judged on the first day of the show, with the prize giving on Sunday afternoon.
