20/21 Sampler - Gaby Lloyd

Following the great success of The Big Stitch in 2012, the Ashmolean Museum and the Embroiderer’s Guild decided to host a second day in conjunction with the Eye of the Needle exhibition. As part of that event, SEW Region held a members’ competition to create a “Modern Sampler”.

Oxford Branch submitted a group entry. Nine members contributed ten A5 textile pages each completed using a different technique. Traditional hand embroidery techniques were used on five of the pages (the 20’s), the other five (the 21’s) used contemporary textile art techniques.
