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

Most of the members were here today and everyone was busy.  Christmas is obviously on everyone's mind but not in their hands as very few have started on their cards and presents.  Lots of work being done for the exhibition in May.  Barbara brought her weaving frame and started setting it up.  The room is so good as you can really spread out if you want to do a large project or get your sewing machine out.  I have started again on one of my small pieces as the background colour was wrong and didn't tie in with the other colours I had used.  The original will go in my workbook as a sample.

This is Barbara's frame as she tightens the long warp's ready for weaving.

Ann's lovely fabric book that she started last month is now about finished.  It's really delicate and lovely colour combinations.

Carolyn's picture is developing well.  She started this last month and has turned it into a sunset.

Ann's workbooks are always amazing.  Lots of samples and different methods.  Here she is still developing the Eden Project canopy.

This was a lovely piece by Kath who was just trying out Markel Sticks on fabric and decided to do something with them.

Jackie is working on the theme of fungi and this is a piece of whitework on that topic.

Christmas lunch next month and then it is 2017 - doesn't time fly when you are having fun!
