Nov. 5 A&S Viking Whipcord Bobbins

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, November 5, 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 Bobbins.

Viking whipcording (or interlocking, slyngyng, or even spoon tossing) is fun, fast, and easy way of braiding cords to make big, strong and more decorative cords.  The Vikings use heavy bobbins to control the ends of the thread. The beginning of the cord is attached overhead firmly and the bobbins are manipulated to form the cord while the weight of the bobbins controls the threads and keeps tension.

There is a cost for this class of around $12. If you don’t wish to take part in the class you are welcome to bring a project of your own to work on while you’re there.

Baroness Hedewigis hosts an A&S Night on the first Tuesday of every month starting at 7:00 pm.  Contact Baroness Hedewigis 302-239-9787 if you have trouble getting to her home, which is a modified red barn.  Carpooling to the site is highly encouraged.
