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.
Only five of us here today but we all managed to get some work done. Maureen has completed her piece based on some old machinery, Ann was painting bondaweb so she could get started on her pieces, Pam and Val were busy stitching and I was making a cobweb felt scarf which turned out very well and I am really pleased with. The village hall is great for making long pieces of felt because they have some good solid, long tables that can be put together to create a long surface to work on. I can feel everyone slowing down now for Christmas, clearing bits and pieces and getting ready for the break.
This is Maureen's piece, now shaped into a pot
Val has done a piece of her own design using various drawn
threadwork stitches. My photography doesn't do it justice.
This is my felted scarf, still very wet but it dried lovely.
