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 2016 meeting

A very busy day for most of us.  Jackie kindly gave us a workshop on the black and white paper printing she did while on a course recently.  Fourteen of us got messy with paint and mark making tools and some very interesting papers were produced.  We used heavy wallpaper lining paper and mostly acrylic paint and ink.  Some people did black, white and another colour, others did their own colour schemes while some made coloured papers for their own projects.

We hope to have our 'Warriors' exhibition on show again in early June.  Hopefully it will be at St. James' Church, Seamer Road, Scarborough in their undercroft gallery.  I will put out exact dates once I have got them confirmed.  It will be nice to have the work on show again.

The new postcard challenge has got underway with everyone bringing in their cards and swopping it for another one to stitch.

Now looking forward to our workshop with Ruth Brown on the 3rd March.

Here is some of the work from the morning workshop.

I apologize for my feet getting in the picture.

I have now cut my paper up and made it into a book format.  We have to embellish our work and then we will take it back in a couple of months and bind them.
