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.

A Delightful Course

I recently attended several courses with the tutor Amanda Clayton who lives in Stafford. 

We only worked in sheer and translucent fabrics in natural colours.  She introduced us to at least ten different fabrics including crepoline, mousseline and pineapple cloth.  We were encouraged to use at least eight different types of thread in neutral colours all supplied by Amanda for us to try.

After twenty-five years of stitching I learned so much from this very generous tutor and lovely person.
