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.

We had an excellent turn out for our exhibition this weekend and they were treated to a wonderful display of work by all the talented ladies in this group.

I was a bit worried that we wouldn't have enough room for all the work, they had done so much but we managed to find space for everyone on our new display boards.  They proved to have been a good buy and we are now a mobile exhibition, so if anyone wants us to grace their village hall or gallery for a few days, we could probably oblige.

Besides all the wonderful work done for the 'Under the Canopy' section, we had a table full of 'Blue' pieces and two tables of work from workshops.  The postcards took up both side of a display board and with the sales table a raffle, the hall was nicely full.  Our thanks to Val and Angela who provided us with a sales table of their work to which some of our members contributed some of their own work, thus creating a lovely selection of goodies to buy.

If you couldn't make the exhibition this weekend or you have a friend who may be interested, do come along to Picturesque Framing Workshop and Gallery, 8-10 St. John's Road, Scarborough, YO12 5ET between the 6th and 23rd of June daily from 10am to 4pm except Sunday and we will be in the gallery upstairs.

Here are some photographs to whet your appetite. Please excuse my photography.

Our new banners brought quite a few people in.  Several husbands having to do U turns to drive back to us.

Liz's lovely display of machine embroidery opened the show.

Space was so tight that Fran and Christina had to share  a space.

Barbara's Bedouin tent.  The wool scarf was woven by her using shetland wool and sari silk.

One of our newer members, Mavis, still had time to produce all these pieces.

Another new member, Ann hand sewed all this lovely picture of a child asleep under the canopy of her buggy.

Wouldn't you love to be out in the rain if your umbrella was as pretty as Maureen's.

Our cyanotype workshop

This was when we got 'plastered' with Maggie Smith

Everyone's depiction of 'Blue'.

Finally, our postcards, which once again was very popular with the visitors.
