Visitors Choice

Summer Stitching Exhibition 2012.

For anyone who knows Dorset and its beautiful coastline, and even those who don't, fell in love with Maureen Coward's sparkling machine worked representation of Durdle Dor. The colours, shades, thread and even the frame glistened with sunshine and light reflected water.

'Durdle Dor' was one of the many innovative and ceative pieces on display at this year's Stitching Exhibition. The theme was 'Doors' inspired by the Manor's many interesting doors and the imaginations of the exhibitors knew no bounds!

Thank you to all exhibitors and to all those who visited and voted for their favourite piece.






Summer Stitching Exhibition 2011.

This year's theme of Water and Wood provided rich opportunities for plenty of talented and skilful expression but Valerie Knott's stunning waterfall piece was justly voted the visitors' choice.

Valerie, a keen stitcher from Northampton, used a combination of techniques, fabrics and beads to create her innovative waterfall which would grace anyone's wall!

Congratulations to Valerie and to all who exhibited!

We look forward to seeing more of your work next year.
