Oh, yes, I forgot to mention.....

I have a wonderful son, but he is often annoying and boisterous (like most
12-yr old boys), so I plan on getting him out of the house most of the day.
Keep in mind that there will be many *sharp* implements of (textile)
destruction and many people who *don't* like to be interrupted when counting
their stitches while holding said implements. If you have a child that isn't
interested in the textile arts, I suggest that you follow my example and
find someone to watch your child during the collegium. There is a Barnes and
Nobles, a Hobby Lobby, a Walmart, and a Home Depot in Cedar Hill.  Great
shopping can be had here for the non-textile friends and spouses, and the
Chick-Fil-A has an indoor playground for the little ones.  There are several
great playgrounds in Cedar Hill at the parks, too.

If you have a child who can sit still and is interested in learning
needlepoint or knitting, etc., this is different.  Please bring them.  Some
of my best pupils in needlepoint have been young ladies and gentlemen.

After the collegium, children (along with the non-textiles addicted spouses)
are welcomed and encouraged to attend the mini-revel and bbq.

Dress is informal - either SCA or mundane - but angel-wing tunics aren't
allowed near the BBQ pit;-)

It is a non-smoking house with dogs - no cats.  The little dog, Yoshi, loves
everybody, especially if you have a lap.  The big dog, Zander, doesn't like
to be stared at, nor does he like big guys with sunglasses, hats, or beards.
He barks, but doesn't bite.  There will be smoking areas set up outside.

We hope to see many of you here.

In Service,

Subject: [Steppes] Fiber Arts Collegium - Directions and mini-revel

Xene here:


This event will be kicking off around 9 AM Saturday, April 19th at my house.

The address is:

302 Sweetgum Dr.
Cedar Hill, TX 75104

My home phone number is: (972) 299-9867.

To get here from Dallas, find your best way to Hwy 67 and Hwy 1382.  Take
the Cedar Hill / 1382 exit, then turn left over Hwy 67 (head east).  Stay on
1382 and it will merge with Beltline Rd.  You will go through the light at
Joe Wilson Rd. and the next light is S. Waterford Oaks.  There is a lot of
construction and this is a new light, so the street sign isn't up at this
time.  Turn right at this light (head south) on S. Waterford Oaks.

You will drive until you see the dead-end and take the last left onto
Shadywood Dr.  Take the first left after that onto Sweetgum.  We are the
last house on the right.  It is a 2-story, red brick house with a front
porch.  Hopefully, we can have a banner out front.

I will have supplies for my little class. I also have a *few* skeins of
embroidery floss in case you don't get a chance to purchase your own and
enough yarn (acrylic) to get you started on some new fiber addiction!

After the collegium officially ends (I'm not sure what time that is -
Vincenzo? - 5ish?), Llywelyn and I are opening up our house for a mini-revel
and bar-b-que.  Those spouses who have dropped of their partners in the
morning for a day of creativity can come join us for an evening of
relaxation, eating, and sharing of our joy of Spring!!  Even if you didn't
have a spouse here, please feel welcome to join us. You might want to bring
your camp chairs just in case.  Who know, perhaps a round of "The Great
Dalmuti" will break out!

See you there!
