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.

October Meeting

We had another busy day today.  Welcome to new member Carolyn who enjoyed her day and is planning to stay.

Well,  the Christmas Lunch is booked as is next years exhibition so clear your calendars for the 13th and 14th May 2017.  We are now the proud owners of our own display boards which we have purchased from the Hutton Buscel art club who no longer require them.  They will give us a lovely display space and we will be able to put our exhibition on in other villages and at other events and so hopefully get our name more well known in the area.

We have a workshop booked for next March with Maggie Smith so that is something to look forward to, as is a talk by a friend of Fran's about looking after your muscles, tendons, etc. while doing embroidery.

I am quite impressed how well everyone is getting on with their 'Under the Canopy' work, it is certainly a popular topic.  Here are some of the pieces under construction.

This is Christine's autumn leaf which will be covered in frost and ice.

 Ann is working on the construction of a huge flower she saw at the Eden Project.

Barbara is stitching these lovely shadowy arches.

New member Carolyn brought this colourful piece to work on.
