Hello to this list.
I am interested in reproducing historical needlework techniques on
reproduction garments and accessories that I can use. I don't want to put
any of my fragile antiques at risk. I have participated in Renaissance
Faires, historical reenactment, living history, and the SCA. I usually end
up doing some kind of needlework at historical events, often where
non-participant tourists can watch me do it.
I knit, crochet, embroider, and make a couple of different kinds of lace.
Sometimes I teach needlework technique. My web page has the directions for
a crochet opera bag from an illustrated Royal Society crochet pamphlet from
1914 which I own (www.slip.net/~wjr/kayta, under Cool Things To Download).
I also weave, spin, and make/wear historical costumes.
>I understand that Rutt is also out of print and I have added my name to

>often reprints out of print books and this might be suggested to them.
My copy is a 1989 re-print, so Interweave might be persuaded to do another
re-printing. Dover seems only to reprint old things on which the original
copyright has run out.
