Christmas Decoration Competition

We put the Christmas tree up in store today. Unfortunately it’s looking and feeling rather sad.



We’re really hoping that you can help us to cheer it up so I bring you… The 2nd Annual Stitch Solihull Christmas Decoration Competition! We hosted the inaugural event last year and were overwhelmed by the quality of your entries. If you want some inspiration, you can see the winning entries from last year here.


We are seeking entries in four categories this year:

  • Knitting
  • Crochet
  • Sewing
  • Children under 12

The first 3 categories are open to anyone over the age of 12. Entries have to be handmade but you are welcome to use patterns to inspire or create your masterpiece. Entries to the children’s category can come from any type of textile related craft be that sewing, knitting, felting, embroidery or something else entirely! It is free to enter and there is no limit to the number of entries you can make.


It wouldn’t be a competition without prizes and we have some great ones to tempt you.  The winner of each of the adult categories will get a £10 Gift Voucher to spend on anything in store. We will also choose an overall winner from these who will win a place on a workshop of their choice.

For our younger entrants, we have a prize of their choice of gift from our range of presents under £10.IMG_0062_2

Important Dates

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Thursday December 18th. Entries can be dropped off in store at any point up to this. All we need is your name and a way to contact you if you are lucky enough to win.

Judging will be via an independent adjudicator and the results will be released at 11am on Saturday December 20th. Entries can be collected after this. We will be celebrating with mulled wine and mince pies so even if you haven’t joined in the competition, come and enjoy a little festive treat and some last minute Christmas shopping.
