January Meeting

Happy New Year to everyone who looks at this Blog.

We had a good meeting this month.  A workshop has been arranged for later in the year with Alysn Midgelow-Marsden so we are all looking forward to that.

The ladies who are joining in the WW1 project that is running in this area, have chosen their topics to work on.  I am doing a piece based on the women munitions workers because my husbands grandmother was a munitions worker in London during the first World War and I think this will be a small tribute to the work she did. We are basing our pieces on medals, with the idea that all the women represented deserved medals for what they did.  Most of the pieces will be based on 'Women in War' and we hope to produce a small but interesting display. 

Plans are starting to take shape now for our Exhibition on the 10th and 11th May this year at Ayton Village Hall, near Scarborough.  The postcode is YO13 9HY for those of you with sat-navs.  It will be from 10am to 4pm and the topic for the main exhibition is 'Elements' so please come along and meet us.

Some of the work this month was interesting.

Jenny had some interesting results using kitchen towel and she has mounted the pieces onto felt and is now stitching into them.

Moira's hand dyed fabrics are going to make a lovely seascape.

Liz had brought in her workbook from her 'snowflake' project

Liz was also working with some hand printed papers that she is making into books.
