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.

April Meeting

I was away for the March meeting, having a lovely time in Bologna so I don't know what happened that day and I have been so busy with the Embroiderers Guild exhibition that I never got the April morning meeting posted, so here we are in the middle of April.

Everyone was busy working today, mostly for our exhibition next month.  Some were tidying up workbooks, some were finishing off pieces and some, like me, were frantically sewing their final piece.  We have planned a 'Dyeing Day' in June, there are a few members who haven't done any dyeing and some who don't like to do it at home, so we thought it would be a good idea to get together and pool our resources and have a go.

Plans for our own exhibition are under way now, the flyers are printed and being distributed, the hall is booked and the display boards hired from the Art Club.  I reminded everyone to bring their 'Chinese Whisper' pieces and there was a groan and some frantic chatter as people tried to remember where they had put them.  That's the only problem with a project that goes over a long period of time.

Here is some of the work that was being done on Thursday.

Roma has been to a Batik class and was stitching into her printing.

Ann has produced one of the most beautiful pieces of silk paper I have ever seen.  It really is gorgeous.

Jenny was searching through her stash of coloured papers when I took this picture.

Pam is working in beads doing a piece based on the sea.
