For your information - a new Textile challenge starts first of June and I may forward you the following text concerning the new challenge:
"Greetings to the Populace of Drachenwlad
I come forth to issue a Textile challenge
This challenge is specifically set towards those that have not had the opportunity to sew a garment/object by hand.
Sewers that are experienced in hand stitching items will not be excluded, but this is meant as a chance for those with no experience in this realm to get a start.
The Challenge I propose is that all persons joining the challenge pick a garment or object of textile nature, no matter how small or large, i.e. a pilgrim bag, a Coif or any type of hat, socks, flag, gloves etc., and have at least one form of documentation for its existence during the SCA time period.
Acceptable forms of documentation for this project will be paintings/woodcuts/drawings with the desired object in it or a picture of the desired object.
The challenge starts first of June and will end one year later. People can join the challenge at any time during this year.
A blog will be made where all participants can post pictures and descriptions of their progress (http://first-timehandsewingchallenge.blogspot.com/).
All interested in joining this challenge please contact me at Gottfriedkilianus @ yahoo . com
