Sorry,  for some reason this e-mail got put in my spam

home.  I would have dropped by  otherwise.  Hope it
went well.

Thanks for  organizing!

Too bad; you were missed.  We had a really good time, and discussed  making 
needle cases as a guild to add to the prize baskets  for Lughnasad.  There were 
seven of us in attendance:  Antonia,  Fiona, Elizabeth, Bice, Dana, Catrin, 
and Caterina.  I will be sending  you a full report on the meeting for you to 
add to your 
A & S report. 
Our first costume workshop is next Tuesday, and we will be starting  Viking 
tunics and Hangeroks (aprons).   These tunics are unisex, so gentlemen, you can 
bring  your fabric if you wish to make one.  Supplies needed are:  the same  
amount of fabric that you would use for a tee tunic (3-4 yards) of linen,  
linen-look blends, wool, etc.; pins; chalk; scissors, thread; measuring tape;  
any trim that is suitable for Viking clothing.  For the hangerok, the  amount of 
fabric will be approximately 1 1/2 times your largest measurement  (hips or 
bust) and trim or yarn for the straps.  Anyone who doesn't wish to  make a 
Viking tunic or hangerok, please feel free to come anyway--just bring  what ever 
you're working on, or pitch in to help someone else.
For the needle cases, please bring any suitable fabric scraps that are  large 
enough to cover a needle case, plastic canvas, yarn, ribbon, or trim  scraps 
that you might have lying around.  Also, if you have any odd or  interesting 
buttons that aren't being used for anything else, bring those,  too.  I will 
make up a couple of prototypes so that you can see what they  look like.  If 
anyone wants to get fancy and bead or embroider a couple to  give away to 
whomever presides over Lughnasad court, that would be great.   I have tons of beads 
and pearls here at the house. 
I will be sending out a reminder notice as we get closer to our next  meeting 
date.  Thanks for coming, and I look forward to seeing you again  next time!
