Winterkingdom question. Ainar was talking about what he might choose for
site tokens for the event. I wondered if the weavers in the Barony might
like to make bookmarks. I was doing some calculations......on the average
loom you can get about 3 yards of weaving. If you figure 16 6 inch pieces
per 3 yard piece (conservatively allowing for waste), and a minimum of 200
site tokens, that would be about 13 pieces of weaving we would need to
achieve 200 6 inch bookmarks. I can commit to at least 2 by the end of the
year, do we have enough weavers who would commit to one or two 3 yard
pieces (or the equivalent in whatever length your loom makes) before the
year is up? I'm thinking thin bands, 1/2' wide or so, and in various
colors so you could use up that scrap thread that we all have lurking in a
tub somewhere...... What say you weavers of Northkeep? Can we do it or
does Ainar need to come up with something else?
