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.

Identity tags at Landmark


When Janette, Carol and I went to the Landmark Arts Centre on Tuesday to give a talk about the research behind “Between the Lines”, I was able to take some more pictures of the exhibition.

Lesley and her right hand man, Tim, had wrapped “barbed wire” around the pillars and hung from it the identity tags  the EASTies had made as examples for the workshop “Ready, Steady, Stitch” which will be happening at the Arts Centre on Sunday as part of the Teddington Fair. 

So if any of the images  below spark your creativity, come along and have a go. Melinda, Janette, June, Lorna, Tricia, Felicity and I will be there, so it will also be a good time to quiz us about our exhibits as well as adding your own take on identity to the new installation.
