This years Battle of Three Kings will be between three Queens:
Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, and her mother-in-law Catherine de
Medici.  An embroidery competition has been inspired from this clash of
feminine wills.  In honor of the embroideries left to us by Mary Stuart,
revealing her talents as a needleworker and her skill as a political
figure, embroiderers of Ansteorra, and neighboring Kingdoms, are
challenged to compete!
The following website,http://www.marie-stuart.co.uk/,  has several photos of
embroidery work done by Mary during her life, some of which were stitched
during
the years she lived in England as a prisoner.  Mary embroidered symbolic
messages in some of her needlework  Some are very subtle, others are
more direct.  May you be inspired to participate in this years Battle.
Get out your needle and thread and tell anyone else in your area that
might be interested!   The event will take place October 3-5 at Hawkins
Lake, Texas.  This event is sponsored by the Shire of Rosenfeld.
