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.

September Meeting

Looking at sorting out our next exhibition for next May so keep an eye open for the date, I just have to check that the village hall is free.

We had another postcard swop today and I am very pleased with the one I have got this time, I have started straight away on it.

Ann and I had a look at silk rods this time.  Ann split hers and then dyed them different colours.  She also had a go at loosening a silk cocoon but didn't get too far with it.  I split my silk rod and have attached it to some fabric and started stitching into it, think it might make a book cover.

 This is the view out of the village hall doorway.  Maybe we should look at what is under the canopy that we can see.

Christine is working on a piece of 'Silver' for the Embroiderers' Guild branch competition.

Mavis was working on tree bark using papers and lutradur.

Roma started this piece of delicate stitching as an experiment.
