Celebration is a judged competition open to any embroidery done by the entrant. We welcome both original and non-original pieces, and they are judged separately. Other divisions within The Exemplary are not judged.
For the Joy of Sharing welcomes any piece stitched by the entrant, especially recent works.
By Invitation honors the work of one person or a group of noteworthy embroiderers. Participation is by invitation only. This division includes an exhibit of works by the annual NAN Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.
