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.

Workshop with Alysn Midgelow-Marsden

We didn't have ameeting in October as several of us went to the Royal Armouries in Leeds for the day to get some inspiration for our Warriors.  We had a really good day out, some ladies brought partners or friends so the mini bus was full and the weather was lovely so it made for a really good day.

An even better day was last Thursday with Alysn Midgelow-Marsden who came to demonstrate 'Meetings with Metals'.  We embossed, burnished, painted and then stitched metal to fabric to make a good set of samples for our books.  After that, there was just enough time for a quick go with Angelina fibres to round off a really good day.   I have now got all my samples in my book but Moira beat me to it as she did hers on Thursday night.  I liked making samples as it is something I don't get much time to do at home.

Here are some of the samples we did.
