Banner Making

Greetings Shire Mates!
We are getting close to setting up our banner making day. I’m very excited about it, how about you?
What size banner would you like? A small one the size of your outstretched arm or a larger, grander one?
Do you have a frame? If so, what size?

Please send your answers and details of your needs to Alejandro at yibachefonc@gmail.com by Thursday October 1, 2015 so I can start organizing this. Your participation is greatly appreciated. The date for banner making will be announced shortly.

Yours in Service,
Alejandro

We truly appreciate the time and space, and big thanks goes out to Padraig for the many many years of service.

Sincerely,

Make a Medieval Textile Belt Purse on Dec. 11, 2014

purse 2Join us for a special project that would be ideal for your garb, to be given as a present or just to learn how to do it! We will be making a Medieval Textile Belt Purse based on those worn in the 13th-16th centuries. It can be easily worn by women or men, depending on the fabric and embellishments, either over garb or under the top layer.

Instructions can be found here. We won’t have time to complete the entire bag in one night, so we will be preparing the fabric, making the tassels and giving instructions on hand stitches and assembly as needed.

Please bring the following with you if you have it.  If not, we will have some to share:

  • Suitable exterior fabric – extant bags ranged from basic linen to elaborate embroidered silks and wools, so you can choose what suits you best. You’ll need 8″x14″ for this pattern. We will have extra linen for those that need it.
  • Lining fabric – linen or silk, same size to be trimmed down. We will have some linen on hand for this.
  • Scissors, thread, needles for hand-sewing
  • Wool yarn or embroidery thread for the trim and tassels


When:

Thursday, December 11, at 6:30pm

Where:

Veronica’s house at 101 McMullen Cir, Bear, DE 19701, USA  Google Map
