We exhibited entries in the Beadweaving Class of the Royal Sydney Easter Show Arts & Crafts Show 2019.
Betty created a bibstyle necklace using freeform peyote stitch with different shaped glass beads in green and gold colours. It was embellished with a green fringe of seed beads, pearls and spear beads, and it had a herringbone stitched rope entwined around the necklace. It was awarded a Second place. Suzanne created a peyote and herringbone stitched sead bead pyramid box. One of its sides was hinged at the bottom and you could open it up to peek inside. It was awarded First place in the Beadweaving Class and also a Standard of Excellence Award. We were both thrilled with these results and very proud of our entries.
A selection of our beaded jewellery and other creations were on sale at the New Zealand Embroidery Conference 2016. We met a lot of lovely people and well done to the committee for organising a great event. Our Raj the Elephant Raffle was won by Audrey from Ashburton. Well done Audrey and safe travels Raj!
We had a trading table at the Auckland Embroiderers' Guild Northern Regional Day, 3 October 2015.
Well done Bev for winning our Raffle!
