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.

February Meeting

There was plenty of sewing machines and various other bits of electrical equipment as we had arranged a group PAT testing session.  Our thanks to Craig who manfully ploughed through them all much confused by all the soldering irons.

The World War 1 projects are really coming along well and we hope to have them ready to join the exhibitions in April.  There may be one or two more to add in at a later date but they are looking good.  We have two poems to include as well which enhances the body of work.  See what you think.

Don't know if you can read the words but the poem is Perhaps by Vera Britten and is reflected in the broken hearted piece and the large felted piece.

This poem is by Jessie Pope and is about women working during the war.  Some of the other pieces aren't quite finished yet but they are well on their way.
Everyone is now pushing on towards completing work for the exhibition.  Ann was preparing a large piece of silk paper, Moira was also working with silk paper to produce a book.  Marilyn was lacing her work up, so that must be near completion.  Jenny was working on this lovely piece of felt, not sure what it will be but it is certainly eye catching.

This is Roma's felting, based on a photograph she took in Scotland.
