Margaret won the prestigious Yorkshire and The Humber Region Challenge Cup for her 3D effect picture of dry stone walls on the theme of "Regional Heritage". Margaret will keep the cup for a year until it is handed to the next recipient (hopefully also from the Halifax Branch!) and she also won a cheque for £50.
Margaret was also thrilled to hear that she had won Third Prize in the Coats Anchor Award for her witty take on the theme of Underground, with her appliquéd carrots and their lovely feather tops. Her prize was a certificate and a smashing box of threads and stuff kindly donated by Coats Anchor.
The competition was judged anonymously by the morning speaker Rubina (Ruby) Porter from Merseyside, who was telling us about her inspirational work with orphans in Bangladesh - read all about her at www.megonline.co.uk/sree-pur-refuge/
