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.

Ready, Steady, Stitch


E.A.S.T members - Felicity, Janette, June, Lorna, Melinda, Susan and Tricia held three workshops at Landmark Arts Centre alongside the Between the Lines exhibition on Sunday.


Many of our visitors chose to take their identity tags home, but we were pleased that others were very happy to share a selection for the gallery's installation.


Some of our visitors started on the printing table before adding stitch or paper to their completed tag, and it was particularly nice to see visitors from the very young to adults joining in - several staying more than an hour enjoying a moment of creativity.




Thanks must go not only to the E.A.S.T members that made the journey across to Teddington, the E.A.S.T members who collected together ideas and materials to prepare for the day, the staff at Landmark, but also to the visitors who participated.
