About Me

East Ayton, Scarborough, North Yorkshire
A group of ladies who enjoy traditional embroidery but who meet once a month to try some experimental work. We meet at Ayton Village Hall on the third Thursday in the month for a full day and again on the first Thursday for half a day. We currently have a waiting list of people who want to join us.

Workshop with Dionne Swift

After a very enjoyable workshop with Dionne last November doing sketchbooks, we booked her again to do some screen printing.

She had us working very hard all day but we all came away with three pieces of printing (except Maureen who left one of hers behind) using different screen printing techniques. 

Everyone is working hard on their 'Elements' theme and one or two used this opportunity to produce some work on that theme.  I have purchased one of Dionne's screens for the group so anyone can borrow it and have another go.  I am about to make a bag to carry it around in - watch this space!

Bookings are under way for our trip to the Bowes Museum on 26th September.  We have a coach of 29 seats to fill so if anyone has a friend or relation that would like to come (men included as long as they don't mind being in a minority) please let Anita know.

I have added a couple of photo's I took of our printing hanging out to dry.  Pity it wasn't fine enough to put it outside.
