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.

May Meeting

I can't believe it is now over two weeks since our meeting and I haven't got the blog done yet.  Time has run away with me what with the bank holiday and everything else.

A few of us joined the Stitching in the Dales workshops which are run each year by the Grassington Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild.  We had an excellent time with Lynda Monk, very hectic but very inspiring.  For photographs of the work done see the Ryedale branch blog on ryedaleg.blogspot.com.  We had a small demonstration running of one of the techniques that Lynda showed us and several people had a go.  Roma was busy demonstrating felt making to Ann who had never done it before.  Moira was making machine cords and Ann also had her sewing machine out finishing off samples from the Lynda Monk workshop.

This is one of Colleen's pieces that I think she calls 'Yorkshire Nuggits'.  The hand is also Colleen's work, as she says 'You can design with anything'.

Here was Ann's work being arranged as samples.

Marilyn was working with buttons and found objects in this piece.

Jackie was trying out one of Lynda's techniques to make snowflakes.
