[HNW] Laurels, Beads, and the Nature of Knowledge

Speaking as a Laurel from Meridies, I am perfectly willing to accept a 
statement indicating that there is no existence of current information 
about a particular technique.  I know that I am not alone in this view 
and that most Meridian Laurels will accept that, unless they know better 
themselves.  We simply expect that the entrant address the point about 
technique in their documentation. 

As far as any other expectations about Meridian requirements in 
embroidery and other textile-applications, they are better addressed in 
the Meridian Embroidery Guild List Serve because this list covers many 
different kingdoms and the time period is not limited to the SCA.  Many 
different historical embroiderers follow this list.  Or anyone can email 
me privately at clare_de_estepa AT hotmail.com  I will be happy to 
discuss documentation issues and Meridian Arts Competitions with 
anyone.  I will conclude with the statement that I have been entering 
for years in textile arts and I have always found it to be a good 
experience.  Sometimes frustrating, but a good experience.
