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.

November meeting

A big sigh now the exhibition is over, although we are trying to get it displayed in another venue, as all that work deserves to be seen for more than two days.

Everyone was keen to know what the next topic will be so I had put together three choices for everyone to choose from, the most votes was the winner.  Choices were - 'A Foreign Affair', 'Under the Canopy', and 'Home Sweet Home'.  Barbara had put in a late suggestion of using a single colour to work from.  After some thought and discussion, everyone liked the idea of working with a single colour but didn't feel that it would be easy to display along with workbooks and also with the type of boards that we use to hang work on.  In the end, 'Under the Canopy' was the choice for the main topic, postcards will be done again starting now with your personal choice of card and also we are doing a small piece of work each in the colour blue.  So more work than I was originally asking!
Jackie has been on an interesting workshop painting papers in black and grey, to which she has added a dash of red.  She is going to source some paper and give us a workshop next year.

Moira brought in some of her sketchbooks with some lovely work inside them.

We seemed to have a busy day and everyone had completed the work they brought in well before the end of the day so that was very satisfying.
