Christmas Creativity Winners

Christmas Creativity Competition

The winning entry
We had a great selection of entries into our Christmas Creativity Competition this year from stockings to advent calanders, reindeer to Christmas bunting.  There was one clear winner who was head and shoulders above the rest, her entry was 'The stand out project for me - easily the for design, originality and finish' said Ali Myer from David & Charles.   Deborah Shepherd from Janome said she found it 'Stylish with simple sewing skills required.'  The winning entry is pictured at the bottom of the page.

There was a clear 2nd prize winner who several points ahead of the others (and who's second entry also would have been in 4th place - but prizes are limited to one per person).  For the other prizes it was a very close call, there were several entries of such a great calibre it was a hard choice for the judges to make....but without further ado lets announce the winners:

1st prize - Winning the Janome MC5900QC (rrp. £799) and being published in the winter edition of Cloth
Kerry Green with her Scandinavian Christmas tree cushion.

2nd Prize - Winning a £100 voucher for Abakhan Fabrics
Helen Wright with her Fairy Light Stocking.

3rd Prize - winning a £50 voucher for RUCraft
Susan Trevor with her advent calender.

4th Prize - Winning an annual subscription to Cloth Magazine
Mary Emmens with her Christmas Bunting.

5th Prize - Winning an annual subscription to Cloth Magazine
Suzan Dury with her advent calender bunting.

6th Prize - Winning an annual subscription to Cloth Magazine
Chris Webb with his Christmas Reindeer.

A big congratulations to all of the winners, we will be in touch with you all later today.  The winning tutorial will be published later this week and many of the others will follow in the lead up to Christmas.  A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to enter.
