This is another of the visual arts sections for all age groups. This section gives the opportunity for anyone interested in needlework to create their own pieces of work and submit them for adjudication. All pieces of work are then exhibited.

Needlecraft Syllabus Download

At the time of printing the 2024 syllabus, we are unable to publish full details of the Art, Photography, Needlecraft and Craft sections due to the proposed refurbishment of Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery.
In the event that the museum is unable to host these events next year, we are looking at alternative arrangements.
If you entered one of these sections last year, your contact details will be on our mailing list and you will be sent details of any future arrangements made. If you entered before 2023 or have not entered previously and would like your name on a mailing list, please contact the Section secretary (see details above) or the Publicity Officer email: [email protected] or Tel: 07454242648
We would like to hear from anyone who could assist with alternatives.
We will also put any updates on our website and Facebook page as and when they occur.

To open the PDF file you may need to install Adobe Reader or for older/slower computers try instead the lightweight Foxit PDF Reader.

Each section syllabus includes the rules, conditions of entry, classes and other information. To download the full syllabus containing ALL sections, please see the Full Syllabus 2024
