COMPETITION 2021

Yes, we're having a competition in 2021 !

Surprise, surprise, it's the same as the 2020 competition - we've decided to continue it, as Covid-19 meant we weren't able to have our usual exhibition.

If you remember, the theme is "AT THE BEACH", which should be a fun place to be, so we want you to have some fun with this one.

Think of all the possible things which could be associated with the beach - a shell, a kite, a sheep (in Shetland they come down to the beach to eat the seaweed), an oil tanker, a picnic blanket, some plastic, driftwood, a bird, a whale, a sunbather, buried treasure, a lost shoe,Osla the Octopys an octopus (Osla from 2018 might make an appearance), a deck chair............ there's no limit to where your imagination might take you !

You can use any medium you like - knit, crochet, weave, felt, cross-stitch, tapestry, macramé, whatever.

The only restriction is that you must use Shetland yarn, or fleece, it must be original, and the majority of the item must be hand-made. Any age can enter, and from any part of the globe.

All entries must be accompanied by an official entry form, which you can download here.

The form has all the Terms and Conditions, so please read them carefully before you send us your entry.
