Horsham Young Embroiderers were the winners of the Ardingly StitchFest Young Embroiderers competition with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

The girls each made a Playing Card which were depicted painting the white roses, red for the Queen of Hearts.

This is the first time that the Horsham Young Embroiderers have entered the competition and so were delighted to win against a very strong opposition from across the South East Region.

The Horsham Young Embroiderers meet once a month during term time on a Saturday morning at Millais School, and under the guidance of many of the Horsham Embroiderers Guild ladies, produce some amazing work.

If you are between the ages of 9-15 and would like to learn how to hand and machine stitch, please telephone Marji Holdsworth on 01403 247738.
