The Trustees Award is an annual event to celebrate five Embroiderers' Guild members nominated for their acknowledged support of their branch and local community in the name of stitch.
This year, 2019 two nominations were put forward independently for Marlborough & District Embroiderers Guild, both of whom were successful in receiving an award. The committee and membership would like to congratulate both Yvonne Miles and Vernice Church on this outstanding achievement.
Yvonne, nominated by the Marlborough & District Embroiderers Guild Committee, has been a branch member since 1995, during which time she has been active on the committee. Her roles have included programme organiser, branch secretary and branch chair between 2008 and 2013.
Vernice, nominated by branch member Nikki Vesey Williams, joined the Guild about 20 years ago. She is a member of both the Windsor and the Marlborough branches. Since becoming a committee member in 2014 she has scheduled interesting and varied speakers and workshops.
