The Pocket Winter Design Competition
In the later months of 2020, the art team at Yale University Press ran a very special winter version of the popular Pocket Design Competition for members of The Embroiderers’ Guild and The Quilters’ Guild.
Inspired by The Pocket: A Hidden History of Women’s Lives, 1660-1900 by Barbara Burman and Ariane Fennetaux, we asked participants to submit an original, winter-inspired design for an 18th century pocket in order to be in with the chance of winning £100 worth of fashion and textile history books from Yale University Press.
The standard of entries was incredibly high, and judges Barbara and Ariane were truly impressed with the creativity and dedication shown by everyone who participated. In the end, however, they settled on their winners, and we’re delighted to share them with you all here!

You will implement your new embroidery techniques to create a decorative bug box to store your keepsakes or embroidery supplies! The goldwork embroidery thread will encapsulate the natural beauty in the insect forms and it will be a fantastic way to put your new stitches to the test.
