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 Morning Meeting

Just a few of us in today we all got some work done as well as putting the world to rights. 

I have put a new blog of mine on for you all to look at if you want.  I have signed up to the Distant Stitch Sketchbook course and as it is all online I have to have a blog of my own.  The first module is on colour so some of it is stuff I have done before but it is good to remind oneself and there are some new things to do as it goes along.  I am just doing their own certificate at the moment but if I keep all the logs up to date, I could switch to City and Guilds at a later date as all the work is the same.  Not sure I need C&G for all the extra cost.

Barbara brought in her pieces for the WW1 exhibitions that will be going on around the area.  We are doing a collection of pieces based on 'Women in the War' and made to look like the medals some of them deserved.  Barbara has focused on the Red Cross and this piece looks really good.

Unfortunately the red on red colour hasn't photographed as well as it could hav.  The second piece is weaving the Barbara has done based on a field of poppies.  She is also doing a larger piece for the exhibition that goes to the Royal Armouries next year.

Pam is getting on with her canvas work depicting various minerals.

Marilyn was attaching birds to her piece of work.

  1. It will be interesting to see what you get up to on your course. I had thought about doing something with the Kemshalls but really still do not have the time I do not think.
