Hello Kathryn,
 
  My name is Joellen and new to the list. I am curious as to when piping would have been considered "period". Certainly 18th century to the present, but, how far ack does it really go?
 
Thanks,

I've alsoseen some cushions in museums (esp. the V&A) which do *not* have tassles.Piping/cording?? That smacks of *modern* asthetics to me. --Kathryn SCA: Kathryn Goodwyn "too many centuries...too little time"_______________________________________________ H-needlework mailing listH-needlework at lists.ansteorra.org http://lists.ansteorra.org/listinfo.cgi/h-needlework-ansteorra.org
