Our Finalists for the first Hope & Gloria Junior Sewing Bee - WOW!
So today the good news was delivered to the last of our fabulous finalists and we have announced who will be joining us for the Grand Final of the first ever Hope & Gloria Junior Sewing Bee on 28th June. The whole Hope & Gloria Team are super-excited and we can't wait for the big day to arrive.
We had a total of 70 entries in round one of the competition. They came from schools far and wide across the counties of Berkshire and Surrey where we run our sewing clubs and it was a true delight to find that our first ever Junior Sewing Bee was met with such enthusiasm.
To say that we were overwhelmed by the quality of the competition entries is an understatement and it was incredibly difficult to pick out just 30 of the children to take through to the final.
All of the runners up have been given a very rare but well deserved "Hope & Gloria Commendation For Creative Sewing" and have received their certificates over the past week. They should all be very proud of their achievements - the whole team think that they are amazing and we hope you will enter the competition again next year.
Our thirty finalists now have to plan what they will make for the final. Their amazing round one entries are featured in the slide show above. Well done to those of you who are in the Grand Final - looking forward to seeing you on the day for what promises to be a fun and fabulous event!
