Second-hand Rose In 2009, the South East Region competition took the theme “Reinvent, Recreate and Recycle – Embroidery for the 21st Century.” This was a bit of a mouthful and we soon developed the idea of ‘Second Hand Rose’, who would have a wardrobe of recycled clothing and accessories to choose from as she set off for the ball at the South of England Showground at Ardingly. Every scrap of her clothing is recycled – from ‘Roses’ sweet wrappers and washing powder bags to tablet packaging.
