About E.A.S.T

East Anglian Stitch Textiles (E.A.S.T) was formed in 1995 in response to a demand for a self-supporting framework for textile artists in East Anglia, UK.


The membership of this group commenced with ten artists and now has fifteen.


Since it's inception E.A.S.T has had a close relationship with Braintree District Museum where it meets monthly and held the first E.A.S.T exhibition in 1997.The group continues to be mentored by Anthea Godfrey, Artistic Director of the Embroiderer's Guild.

E.A.S.T have moved



E.A.S.T packed their work up and it is now safely at our new exhibition venue.  The team will be at Landmark Arts Centre, in Teddington in South West London tomorrow to get our exhibition Between the Lines ready for display.  The exhibition will be open from Wednesday 15 June to Sunday 10 July 2016.

In celebration we have created this new blog site - so if you followed us on our old site, you need to change your bookmarks.  The old blog can still be accessed but will not be updated now.  You can visit it here.

Alongside the exhibition we have three very special events:

On Saturday 18 June 2016, Libby and her helper June will be running a workshop at Landmark Arts Centre called Lines of Communication.  Attendees will be shown how to create a mixed media panel with text, envelopes and ephemera.  Tickets were still available when we spoke to Landmark Arts recently and you do need to book in advance.  Although developed from our WW1 themed exhibition this workshop relates to themes of identity and text - so you can create your own very personal small panel.  Only £45 - contact Landmark Arts Centre direct to make a booking - call 020 8977 7558.

On Tuesday 21 June 2016, Susan and Janette, assisted by Carol, will be talking about the Between the Lines project.  Giving an insight into the stories behind the work and some of the techniques used. There is a charge of £5 but that includes the talk and tea.

On Sunday 26 June 2016, several members of the E.A.S.T group will be running a family drop in workshop - suitable for anyone aged from 3 to 93 (or over).  All materials will be supplied and the event is free, from 12 noon until 4pm.  Stay for a few minutes or a couple of hours.  No need to book. The event is running at the same time as the Teddington Fair - so plenty to see and do on the day.

  1. Hi Janette,
    Well done on creating this brilliant blog site.
    It seems all is well in Teddington and already receiving comments from the visitors. I can't wait to see our work in this impressive centre in Teddington. Thanks
