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.

June Meeting

Almost a full house this week, only one person missing.  We had a very active day with the two newcomers settling in.  Jackie and Cath made some felt as Cath had never done it before.  Ann was creating her biosphere (!) to cover her plants for Under the Canopy.  Liz was trying out her new sewing machine creating a lovely panel for her Under the Canopy.  Moira was painting papers and Colleen was experimenting with her embellisher.  Everyone else was sewing, drawing and working away like busy bees.

The exhibition at St James' Church went very well really although not very well attended, most of the people who came had not heard of us before so we are slowly reaching a new audience.  We will have to think about advertising in new places next time.

Our book covers that we made in our first year are now on display as a childrens area in the Bankfield Museum all this summer.  We have lent them out to the Embroiderers' Guild for their exhibition there.  Our First World War embroideries will be on display at Scalby parish church from the 1st to the 3rd July along with some of the other work.

Christina found this piece of embellising in the cupboard and has decided to stitch into it.

Christine is doing leaves trapped in ice for her Under the Canopy.
