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.

October Meeting

The day we had all been waiting for.  The Chinese Whispers would be revealed.  This all started last year when we split into two groups, each group was given a photograph that only the first person in the group could look at.  That person did a piece of work based on that photograph and then the piece of work was passed on to the next person.  No one else saw the photograph and just did an interpretation of the work they had been given.  It is amazing how it develops and changes.  Below are the two photographs and the first two pieces taken from it.  If you want to see the last pieces, you will need to come to our exhibition next May when they will all be on display.

Some lovely work was done on each piece.

As I mentioned above, we have settled a date for our exhibition on the 10th and 11th May 2014 at
Ayton Village Hall, so keep a look for notices nearer the date.

There were 18 of us in the hall this week so it was very busy.  Christina was making cling film sandwiches, Liz was finishing off some book covers and Barbara was in the long back room making cords.  It was a lovely bright sunny day, a shame to be indoors really but we all enjoyed ourselves and there was chocolate cake as it was National Chocolate Week.

Pam has moved to the seaside.

While Marilyn is heading around the world.
