A&S Nights

It’s that time of year again when we set up the schedule for the next 10 months.

A&S night will continue to be at Baroness Hedewigis’, Hockessin, Delaware home. We will also have some scattered A&S events throughout the year at different places and times as we find teachers and sites. Also, remember that Mondays nights at Bhakail are a great time to learn something new, or work on a project.

Next month, (October) I will be teaching “The 60 second Veil Stitch” and we will be making cup covers. Some materials will be provided, but please feel free to bring Fabric, Beads, Thread and Needles. Handouts will be provided.

Classes offered, to be scheduled, include: Black work pincushions, Bread, Embroidery, Basic Brewing, Felting, Wool Workings, Appliqué, Sewing with Patterns, Cup Covers, Non Period glass bottle holders.

Classes we are interested in, and looking for teachers: Glass Beads, 14th Century Hood Fitting, Soap, Curing/Dying/Tanning Leatherwork, Divination, Spinning, Basket making, Basic garb, Needle Lace, Basic Pennsic Prep, Herringbone Caps.

Please contact Lady Katrin if you would be interested in volunteering to teach any classes.

Banner Painting!

Banners will be done in two parts!
Part One will be on September 21st and costs $5.
We will go over banner design, map out our banners on large graph paper, and set up our frames. We will also have the opportunity to do a small silk painting in an embroidery hoop. Please bring full or half page printouts of your heraldry elements if you have them, to assist in your design.

Part Two will be on October 5th and will cost $10. Here we will finish marking out the silk, and will pant the banners.

Please contact Lady Shoshana if you are interested in attending!
