It isn't SCA specific, but NPR did a story today about an embroidery business in France - the House of Lesage. If you are interested in stitching, you will find it interesting.

And, if you are a parent, you will find this quote amusing:

Lesage says years back, in good families, all the girls had to sew. "You know why?" he asks. "To occupy them not to think of the boys - it's true!"

Cheers,
