Who we are

The East Yorkshire Embroidery Society are an enthusiastic group of people who meet regularly to share their passion for all things creative.

The society started in 1982 when a group of women wanted to continue to meet and share their interest in embroidery after forming a friendship during their City and Guilds embroidery course.  They also wanted to introduce others to the many delights of embroidery.

The society has developed its interests since that time, and now encompasses all forms of textile art, both modern and traditional. To keep abreast of new techniques we invite well known and progressive artists to speak to the group each month.  Regular workshops and visits give a chance to meet and share learning in different creative techniques.

Regular features at the monthly meetings are:

  • A well stocked library from which members can borrow
  • A sales table
  • An exhibition of members work

The main monthly meeting is held on the second Saturday of every month except Saturday.  Meetings are held from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Admission from 2pm.  Meeting fee is £1.50 for members and £2.50 for visitors, this includes refreshments.  Membership fee is £8.00 per annum.

EYELETS

 

The Society also has a flourishing younger group called EYELETS, catering for children aged 5 to 16.

The EYELETS meetings are mainly held during school half terms, and the Easter Holidays, when children are encouraged to experiment with different types of textile work and related skills.

Upwards of 20 children attend the meetings which are held in the Methodist church hall, Cottingham.

In the past the older children have achieved success at national quilt shows.  Some of the children’s group work can be seen on display in Cottingham Library.
