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.

EAST is 21 years old this month and we had a small tea party to celebrate. Members were joined by friends, Braintree Museum and Warner Textile Archive staff. Some past EAST members were also able to join us.
As with all great celebrations we had a celebratory cake, our one kindly made by Anthea. We had live music too supplied by Larry Berkovitz.
Thanks to everyone who made the afternoon a success.
More photos to follow.
