What is the main prize?

A Husqvarna Viking H Class 100Q sewing machine for the school the winning student attends. This machine normally retails for over £300. The winning student will also win a smaller separate prize. 

  • This machine is great for beginners as well as for more experienced sewers
  • It is compact, lightweight & easy to store with its own hard carry case 
  • Ideal features for beginners e.g. speed control, beeps if you forget to put your presser foot down when sewing, built in needle threader, needle stop up/down for easy corners and appliqué
  • Great additional features for the more adventurous sewer e.g. 20 built in utility and decorative stitches, buttonhole function, extra-high presser foot lift for stitching thick fabrics, fix function to tie off stitches neatly

What other prizes are there?


The competition aims to encourage students to enter the competition and therefore there are lots of prizes to be won. As well as the main prize students in 2nd and 3rd place will also receive a prize. In addition there will be small prizes and certificates for students whose work is judged as ‘highly commended’ or ‘merit’. 

There will also be a prize for the school whose students’ entries are all of a consistently high level, where the paperwork is well completed and where the spirit of the competition aims have been fulfilled. This prize aims to acknowledge the hard work of teachers who use the competition as a whole class project.

Can entries be sent from outside the UK?

The competition is open to UK mainland entrants only. Entries outside the UK mainland  are accepted but these won’t be entered into the official competition and they can’t win any of the prizes. If any outstanding entries from outside of the UK mainland are received they will be acknowledged by being featured on the website as a separate part of the competition.
