MEMBER'S ANNUAL CHALLENGE
Our Annual Challenge creates a lot of interest each year with many visitors wanting to purchase the entries. As the challenge is often displayed near the sales table, this misunderstanding is natural. Our members create items that depict the challenge each year and they range from beautiful, practical, quirky, funky and quite amusing!
In past years the Challenge has been judged by our Guest Exhibitor however in 2016, our challenge was to make quilt tops. This was judged as a Viewer's Choice and we found that our visitors loved having two Viewer's Choice awards and being able to vote twice. Since then, our Challenge has been judged by our viewers.

For this challenge I wanted to do something a bit different - rather than the obvious themes such as sailing boats or windmills. I started researching symbols for the elements and discovered that in ancient Asian culture the symbols were dragons - blue for water and yellow for air. My design is a blue dragon being surrounded by yellow dragons - the wind circling the water.
2009 1st Challenge Sandra's item was a young lady preparing to have a shower and is able to cover herself in a towel. The wall hanging can close up around the figure with her head, hands and feet showing from he towel.
