536RE: [WKneedle] Preparing pieces for Guild evaluation
- Feb 3, 2004Joan,
I've personally found that it really truly depends on the evaluator. They
all like to see the embroidery to be done or nearly so, but whether or not
it's made into a finished product really depends on who's looking at it. I
turned in one piece that was completely done as a final product - one
evaluator wished they could have seen the back of the work. I turned in
another peice that was just the embroidery and not yet made into a final
product - one evaluator wished they could have seen it in its final form!
Sigh. I think a good midway point is to finish the embroidery and say what
the final product will be (instead of just German counted thread satin
stitch, say German counted thread satin stitch pouch), and if any of the
evaluators express a desire to see the finished product, try and find them
once you're done and show them.
My two bezants,
