- Textile Experimental Group
- 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.

Not an awful lot to report this month, We welcomed a new member, Yvonne and set out a plan for the coming year. We are not starting on our new topic until about September and in the intervening months we are going back to the start of the group and looking at some of the new techniques, fabrics and equipment you can now use in textile work. We had a quick look at making printed papers as a start for ideas for printing fabric or making an embroidery of your own design. We also looked at how to isolate a small area in a photograph or picture to inspire a piece of work. I think work will start next month with Kunin felt and how to use it.
