For the past 5 months Aimee Betts has been mentoring 2 finalists, Jacky Puzey and Miyako Asaba, for the Hand & Lock Embroidery Prize 2015.

The Awards Ceremony took place on Thursday 5th November at the prestigious Bishopsgate Institute, and I'm thrilled to say that Jacky Puzey won 1st Prize in the Open Category.

All 11 finalists produced fantastic, original and innovative garments that challenged the perception and application of embroidery. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jacky and Miyako, who both worked incredibly hard throughout the competition.
