Needlecraft Competition 1934-35

In 1935-35 Enid Howells (my mother’s maiden name) won the Schoolmistress National Needlecraft Competition in her age class.  This was a national exhibition of needlework organised by ‘Schoolmistress.’  There were 12,000 entries and Enid was aged 7.  This was a great achievement and even made it into the local newspaper.  At the time she was a pupil at Shoreham Council Junior Mixed School.

Enid was always very good at sewing, but as I remember she did much more knitting than sewing when I was a child and growing up.  She had an amazing ability to follow complicated patterns and designs.
