Greetings unto the Fiber Artists of the Loch!
It is the second Monday of the month - and a night to focus on our
Fiber Arts! Or any related skill: knitting mail, constructing looms,
casting spindle whorls, spinning tales, de-hairing vellum, and so on.
I have a special treat on this Monday. A stealthy SCAdian seamstress
in the neighborhood has cleaned out one of her rooms of fabric.
Half, she resigned to Goodwill. The decent stuff is all in my garage
sorted for easy searching, looking for a good home. Velvets,
tapestry, silks/rayons, cotton lightweight/broadcloth/twill,
imitation furs, wools, linen/linen-blends, trim, patterns. Also, I
have an unopened bag of finished garb, although it is probably mostly
for tall, willowy, underfed women.
Maggie: There is some nice wide-striped cloth for your embroidery
classes. And some great car-colors.
Sile: There is an unusual bit of yellow-ish wool you might like. And
I've saved some of the white cotton for Newcomer chemises/undertunics.
Rhiannan/Katya: There's a black-on-grey ?Middle Eastern? patterned
cloth that you might find interesting.
Hedwig - I've pulled out some khaki green twills. Maybe we can
finish that cloak. And there's an eye-bleeding turquoise cotton that
one of your daughters might like. And another cotton in the peach
from Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry.
Anyone need flaming red cotton? Or a bolt of orange twill? Or
scraps of a yellow laurel-pattern brocade? Or tons of stretchy green
velvet? Or a yard of red cotton velvet? Or a couple yards of fine
Please, come and dig for treasures. Then sit back and relax with a
cup of tea and a book of ideas for outfits.
