Dec. 3 A&S Viking Whipcord & Illuminated Bookmarks

Greetings!  Join us for this monthly, informal gathering where we work on A & S projects together.  Come with your own project or learn something new!  Dress is modern.

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

The home of Baroness Hedewigis, 1604 Old Wilmington Road, Hockessin, DE 19707.

Baroness Hedewigis will teach us how to make Viking Whipcord (with the Bobbins we made last month… or bring your own bobbins).

Viking whipcording is fun, fast, and easy way of braiding to make big, strong and decorative cords.  The Vikings use heavy bobbins to control the ends of the thread, which are attached overhead firmly; and the bobbins are then manipulated to form the cord while the weight of the bobbins controls the threads and keeps tension.

Lady Mari will be teach us how to illuminate a bookmark.  An illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is supplemented with decoration including initials, borders, marginalia, and miniature illustrations. Rather than an entire manuscript, we’ll illuminate a smaller piece, a bookmark!

Hope to see you all there!
