How to Teach Anything in the SCA
14c-15c Italian Patchwork
Early Anglo Saxon Jewelry
Quilts During the Time of Henry VIII
My first ever graded Arts and Sciences competition. I entered my coral paternoster and 6 strips of lace as a "sampler" graded on 5 areas (score 1-10)
Lace - Workmanship 9, Creativity 9, Authenticity 10, Documentation 7, Overall 8.5 (Total 43.5)
Paternoster - Wkmanship 6.5, Creativty 7.5, Auth 7.5, Documentation 5, Overall 8 (Total 34.5)
There weren't any comments, so I'm not sure exactly where to improve, but my documentation got the lowest points, so I guess I'll start there. I think I'll let some of those in the know read the documentation and see if they can point me in the right direction.
I need to decide what project I will do next. I need to try more of the lace patterns that are of increased difficulty, and to copy an extant piece of lace (perhaps attached to whatever it was meant to adorn).
I am considering entering my Teneriffe lace for an "Athena's Thimble" panel. I believe there will be one at Yule. I need to find all the ones I have been making for holiday gifts.

I demonstrated lace for a whole day at "The Big E" (Eastern States Exhibition), and again at a nursing home Apple Fest Crafts Fair.
I have been working out of the prickings derived from The Nuw Modelbuk of 1556. Here are 7 with under 10 pairs. They're all done with linen threads
