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!
