For all people who are interested into our Embroidery Guild but no member of our Guild-Mailinglist:
"To all members of the Dragon's Needle Guild does Freydis, Guildmistress, sends greeting.
For some time now RL has placed many demands on me that have meant that I have had less time to attend to guild matters than I might have wished. I am therefore giving up the role of guildmistress and passing it on to Racaire, an embroideress of great talent. I know that she will inspire the embroiders of our Kingdom to create many and varied examples of the art of the needle.
YIS, Freydis, once-guildmistress"
...and this is my answer I sent to the Guild-Mailinglist:
"Dear gentle members of the Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild, I send you greetings from Vienna, Austria.
Many thanks to the former Guildmistress Lady Freydis for all her great work and the time that she has spent for the embroidery guild and our beautiful hobby and for her gentle words about my person - I hope that I will do this work at least as good as she has done. With the help of Lady Freydis it will take some time for me to get an overview about the role of the guildmistress and the guild matters - please be patient with me.
...at this point I would like to draw your attention to this two small projects of THL Anya Mstyslavyaya and myself:
We also started a new embroidery project at the beginning of September - "Something to keep you warm..." - please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to join this challenge.
If you would like to get to know me in real - I will be at the University in November and I am thinking about a "Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild meet and greet". Concerning my own embroidery projects please visit my personal homepage or my embroidery blog.
Yours in Service, Racaire designated new Guildmistress of the Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild"
Here are the Photos of my Tablecloth Anya asked for
On the first photo I hope ,to show that the motiv of the reindeers are printed on the tablecloth ,but it´s not good to see,I´m sorry
Also some photos from another project ,I started a time before.I wanted to finish the Gown since Summer Coronation these Year,but I have some trouble with my shouler and the Gown is to heavy to hold to finish the embroidery yet.It has to wait untill next Year
The Material of the Gown is Cotton in Curry Color and the Embroidery Yarn is from Anchor The Stiches I used for the Gown ,was a mixture between Satin and Brick Stich Shading The motiv were Ivy Leafs ,that i collect in the last autumn.You see, I work a long time on this Gown till know
At the moment I have to make some preparations for the this year's University, so today here are some photos from me:
I have photos of a gown I made after my pouch
The gown is a wool mixture and I embroidered it with crochet yarn ,with celtic motivs. I got the idea from last year's University, seen on Duke Sven's tunic. I'll try to show some more photos of me in the gown from this year's Nibelungen War. I hope I get it on the weekend.
Just thought I'd post some pictures of the apprentice belt I made for my apprentice sister Bridgid. It's hand woven (inkle) with dark green silk, backed with light green silk fabric with a leather interlining. The stitches are split stitch, satin stitch, and laid wire work. the embroidery threads are also silk.
