We have delightful news! Ascelin Meere of Ravenslocke (Denise Sullivan) will be hosting the West Kingdom Needleworkers Guild Salon (and leading the Business Meeting in my stead) at 11:30am on Saturday of Crown, at her personal day-shade! Catch up on the latest news about Rose Pouches, the future of the Royal Napkin project and finances of the West Kingdom Needleworkers Guild. All the newest information! Remember to bring your own chair, any libations or clean-finger nibbles you’d enjoy sharing and your latest project. If you have a lap frame, please bring it for her class on Opus Anglicanum!
Ascelin has a marvelous day of Salon planned, beginning at 11 am, with a trestle and slate frame available so passers-by can experience how embroidery was created centuries ago. Please invite your stitch-curious friends to stop by and visit! It’s an accessible and unique opportunity to experience the artistry that is embroidery.
Ascelin will be leading a class on stitches used in the Opus Anglicanum at her Salon (11am, on-going). While she has supplies for 10 people, there are only 6 lap-frames. Please plan to bring a lap frame if you have one! (and your readers for close-work!) Extra supplies, especially silks, are always welcomed.
Have a Joyous Crown and until we meet again, may your needles always fly true!

“Extra” pouches – target date 12th Night 2019 (still pending) – Judy Pearce, Liz de Belcaire, Shannon McSmithThis project is to provide a pouch for each Queen who reigns on her stepdown. The guidelines are in a document in our file section. They are treasured by those who receive them and well used. The Queen is told who the maker is when the pouch is delivered in private to the Queen. If you are interested in participating in this project or have any questions, please let me know. Thank-you!
March Crown approaches this coming weekend and with it, a chance to gather together and let our needles fly while watching our friends in shiny steel whack about on things. Sit in the shade ericside and catch up on the latest Needleworking projects and news with me! Look for us in Westermark’s pavilion on the List Field. The Needleworkers Salon sign will be out front!
Sabrina de la Berre will give an update on Rose Pouch creation (if you’re working on the latest Rose Pouch, won’t you bring it along to show us all?) The Royal Napkin project remains leaderless, so you’ll want to hear the latest on that, and we’ll be discussing receipt reimbursements as well as the 2020 War Cloak. I will be looking for someone to advise me on Viking Embroidery, so if that is your love, come and set next to me so we might draw on things and talk stitching.
Remember your chair and we’ll see you on the List Field this Saturday for an hour, when First Round begins! Until we meet, may your needle fly true!
