Just to add my chorus, I am also new to this list. I am former SCA, now 
mostly an online lurker on the fringes. I am predominantly a cross-stitcher, 
but I have started dabbling my hand in other styles of needlework. 

Does anyone have any tips for learning blackwork? I've never learned 
embroidery before, so this is taking some mental adjustment. I have followed 
the instructions for the double running stitch from the various books and 
websites, but they tend to focus on making a straight line, not more 
intricate patterns. I looked at the Queen Jane's cuff design Maire mentioned 
and it looks deceptively easy until you have to make that first turn or two.
