2022 Bobbie Pilling Award
"Out of the box" Needlework
The Bobbie Pilling Memorial award, established to honor a treasure of EGA, a longtime supporter and former national president, Barbara (Bobbie) Pilling, is presented to an EGA member who has “gone outside the box” with an original piece of needlework that shows personal growth and artistic merit. The accompanying statement should address both personal growth and artistic merit and explain how the stitcher thought “outside the box.” Learn more about this award in our Scholarships and Awards page.
Enjoy a look at the entries in the 2022 Bobbie Pilling Memorial Award stitched by EGA members.
