Welcome to the OVGS
RSN Sampler Competition
A Recently joined OVGS member, Chris House has distinguished himself by tying for first place in the Royal School of Needlework's Millennium Sampler Competition. Titled "Whirlwind of Stitches" ,Chris has designed a marvelous spiral swirling sampler that reflects styles, size and colour in an almost shell-like effect. Chris used PowerPoint to design his winning entry and then submitted that image to the RSN judges. Chris is now in the process of completing the stitching of the sampler in time to meet the final deadline in early 2015 at which point the finished and framed piece will eventually become part of the permanent collection on display at Hampton Court Palace.
Congratulations Chris we are very proud of you!
