At the SCA event Yule in the barony of Borealis (mundanely Edmonton) I’ve offered to teach a class on pattern drafting for millinery (hats).
The event takes place December 9-10, 2017. The Facebook event for more information is here.
Along with the diamond twill wool I mentioned a few posts back, some of my best purchases the Turku Medieval Market, (Keskiaikaiset markkinat) were jewellery and *bling* for my Viking age kit.
The jewellery booths were generally quite popular, so some of my photos aren’t great – because the booth was too crowded to get good photos! I looked mostly for booths that had reasonable prices for good-looking replicas, but there were also several booths with accessories more with a “medieval feel” or medieval-inspired, which I didn’t take photos of.
It’s been a while since I made kumihimo cord, but I needed something pretty and meaningful for a gift, so I pulled out my disk, and did a six-strand cord with two strands of red and four black.
To top off (ha ha) my new Italian Renaissance costume, I needed headwear. I looked at a few different options:
.. so of COURSE with 2 weeks to go before the event, and NONE of the garments completed yet, I opted to go for the fourth option.
To celebrate Caterina’s elevation, a number of us made largess (gifts) to present to the King and Queen as part of the “bountiful chests of House Fine Lames” (her SCA house). I’m not a member of her house, but sort of an ‘extended family member’, so I contributed the lute-shaped purse I made previously, along with 17 faux pearl and coral necklaces.
