2021 Exhibition Poster Competition
We need a new exhibition poster for the 2021 exhibition.
Any branch or individual members who wishes to create a poster please do so.
We need it by the last day of February. The exhibition team will narrow the choices down for a final vote at the March meeting.
We have a temporary poster on the regional website please feel free to crib the information required from there. It must have where, when - including times, what will be there.
We can’t wait to seeing the members amazing creations. A small prize will go to the winner.

Have you got a special event you want advertised around the region or places left on a day out or workshop? Let us know so we can try to help you fill places. Branch programmes; if yours isn’t on the website then Gillian Barrett does not have it. Please forward asap so we can share your events.
This website was launched on 1st September 2016. We have already made some minor tweaks and have plans to add extras as we progress. Meanwhile we ask you our users to let us know what you think. Are you happy with the format? Have you found something wrong or are we missing an area you feel we should include? Then tell us as this is your site. Would you like to share your photos with the users then send them into us with your name, branch or individual member and which album they are for. My thanks to Gillian Barrett for working with me and helping me create the site for you. Lastly thanks to the exhibition team for all of the proof reading.
Happy Sugarcrafting Carolyn x
