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.

August Meeting

We were a few members missing today due to holidays, etc. but fourteen of us got a bit of work done.

We have confirmed the 22nd and 23rd of March 2014 as a date for our next exhibition so everyone now has a timescale to work to.  The exhibition will feature our main body of work on 'Elements' but we will also be displaying work done in workshops and other experimental things we have done.

One of the members, Barbara, has had her weaving selected for the next exhibition at the Quilt Museum in York.  It will be on display from the 6th September to the 30th November.  The Quilt Museum have started putting small exhibitions of different types of work to compliment their main exhibitions of quilts and patchwork and I think it works well.

Another of our members, Marion Atkinson has an exhibition of her work on in Scarborough

'Sea Fret'

Contemporary textiles.

30th Aug. to 15th Sep. at Undercroft Gallery. St. James Church. 24 Seamer Road. Scarborough

Fridays/Saturdays 11-00 till 4-00, and Sundays 2-00 till 4-00
Maureen and Barbara have both been going backwards on their work since last month but the changes they have made are for the better!  Christina brought her granddaughter with her today and we have all been encouraging her with her sewing.
Liz has created this lovely image of the Taj Mahal using one of her screen prints as the background. 

Jackie has been doing some more printing.  The top piece is a thermofax print on some hand dyed fabric.  The bottom one is leaf rubbings using water soluble crayons then the piece is dipped in water to bring out the colours and make some of them run.  It looks really good.
