Variety Bag Competition

Offer Closes: October 27, 2006
Entry Deadline: November 30, 2006

£3,300 of prizes to be won

33 prizes of £100 worth of products from Texere Yarns (that's a prize for every year the company has been around!)

Send for a FREE Variety Bag from Texere Yarns and use it to make your entry for our competition.

The Competition

Using the contents of the chosen Variety Bag as the main source of yarn, we are challenging you to create a piece of work not exceeding A4 in size.

The choice of technique is up to you. Use the yarns for hand or machine embroidery, couching, weaving, embellishing, braid and tassel making, knitting - or combine a variety of techniques. Other media, such as paints, Bondaweb, buttons, beads, braids or lace can also be used.

Let the colour of your chosen Variety Bag inspire you - and allow your imagination to run riot!

Variety Bags

Available in a range of 19 colourways, from bright primaries to dark dramatics and soft pastels, Texere Variety Bags contain an assortment of mainly fancy yarns including ribbon, glitter, chenille, mohair, loop, slub and bouclé; each bag contains 3 metres each of a minimum of 15 yarns of one colourway.
