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.

Last Meeting of 2013

There were 16 of us at the last meeting and we had quite a busy session.  Most were stitching or drawing, painting was not indulged in as we were all dressed up ready for our lunch out at Betton Farm. 

Six of us had a talk with a lady who is setting up a textile exhibition based on World War 1.  We are joining in as representatives of our group.  The exhibition will tour local libraries during 2014 but in 2015 it will go to the Royal Armouries in Leeds and then onto Portsmouth.  It will also display in York but I can't remember where.  Hopefully there will be even more venues over the four years commemorating the war.  We had a good session bouncing ideas around and have decided to produce pieces of work based on the shapes of medals but about A4 size.  The theme will be 'Women in World War 1' and looking at the different roles they played.  Hope to have some ideas on paper next month.  Some of the pieces already produced are quite dark so we are going to try and do 'colourful'.  There should be a website in action in the new year so I will put up a link to it when it gets going.

We cleared away about twelve o'clock and headed out for a really nice lunch.  Afterwards we came back and collected our things and headed home.  No photographs this time as I forgot my camera again. 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
