Super Six Largess Contest – All entrants will create 6 items based on a theme that is suitable for largesse, ie 6 needlebooks, 6 game boards, 6 pouches, 6 socks would not be suitable as they are only 3 pairs. Items need not be documentable as this is not an A & S competition but period materials are appreciated. Please make sure all items are tagged with your name and area. The winner of the contest is the person with the most beads in their entry cup. The winner gets to select one item from each of the other competitors, so 8 entries means 7 prizes J
