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 Meeting

Suddenly realised I had not done the February blog, so here we are.  We had a good meeting, everyone getting down to their stitching.  We now have an extension to our exhibition in May.  The Picturesque framing shop in Scarborough has now got a new exhibition gallery upstairs and we are going to display our work there in June of this year.  Dates will probably be from the 5th to the 23rd of June and don't forget the 13th and 14th May at Ayton village hall.  Flyers and posters will be coming out soon.

A couple of us have sent our embroidered signatures off to the Campaign for Creativity which is run by Twistedthreads, the Knitting and Stitching show people.  This is a request to the government to look at improving the teaching of creative arts in schools.  They hope to get 10,000 signatures and as many as possible to be stitched in some way.  Have a look at the Twistedthreads website.

So here are a couple of photographs of what has been stitched so far.

Ann has been working this technique she learnt at a workshop.

Moira was using the embellisher to create this lovely surface.
