Greetings to all the wonderful fiber artisans in Ansteorra and to those curious about the fiber arts, from
Mistress Radegund of Tours.

The Barony of Bjornsborg is proud to host a Fiber Arts College on June 23, 2007.

This will be 2 weeks after King's College.  If you take a fiber arts class then that you want a refresher on or want to move to the next level, we may have the class for you.  After the excitement of outdoor classes, we are pleased to present air-conditioned classrooms and gathering area.  The indigo dyeing and loom-building classes will be outdoors.

This is an off-calendar event.  The idea is classes, no lunch provided - bring a lunch or go offsite to get it, more classes, after classes a potluck dinner and spin/weave/fiber-in, either on site or at someone's house.  Just sitting around talking fiber, working on projects and eating supper.  

The website for the event is at http://cternus.home.texas.net/FiberArtsHome/ .  Please check the web site periodically for updates.

The classes I'm lining up include:

Spinning-related classes: 
Fiber prep - carding and combing wool 
Beginning spinning with handspindle, low or hi whorl 
Hand spinning
Beginning spinning with treadle wheel 
Period Sheep Breeds  

Weaving-related classes:  
Beginning tablet -weaving 
Beginning Inkle weaving
Quick warp and how to warp a jack loom
Weaving nomenclature

Other fiber-related classes: 
Beginning nalbinding 
intermediate/advanced nalbinding 
Beginning knitting 
Making Ansteorran insignia
Indigo dyeing 
Making period upright tablet weaving loom or period embroidery frame 

For questions or suggestions, contact me at cternus at texas.net .  Please pass this message along to any of those who may not be subscribed to any email lists on the Ansteorran server.  Thanks.

Hope to see you there.
