new project for 2011: "We have Dragons"!


2nd Guild Project - "We have Dragons"


- Fabric: wool
- Fabric size: 20,0 x 20,0 cm (7,9 x 7,9 inch) + ca. 1,5 cm (0,6 inch) Surplus for sewing
- Fabric color: every color allowed
- Embroidery: every technique allowed
- Important restrictions: 1) at least one dragon per patch (or more!) ; 2) the basic fabric for the patch should be wool, you can use silk, linen, wool, metal,... (thread or fabric) to embroider it
- Start date: 1st of January 2011
- End date: October 2011 (please send in your patches till 1st of October)

- The project is open to everyone - you don't need to be a Guild member to join this project.
- Every embroidery technique and skill is welcome - please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested!!

If you ever had a favourite picture or story including at least one or more dragons - this is the time to embroider it!

Dragons fighting against knights, dragons sleeping at the top of a hoard, dragons flying above woods, lakes, fjords, mountains; dragons eating or scaring virgins, a dragon mother surrounded by kids, dragons who just lost their fight against the knight (or the other way round), ... just take a journey through your memories and the old stories you read in books or you've been told - lets bring the old legends to life again! :)

...and if your embroidery is based on an old myth - I really wouldn't mind if you tell us the old myth by posting a picture of your embroidery and a short text telling the legend (and if you don't like to post it by yourself, you can still send me your photo and your text and I will do that for you).

Thinking of all people and also the newcomers in some regions, who maybe haven't done a lot of wool embroidery till now, I would ask the lords and ladies who have some experience in wool embroidery to screw up their courage and to offer one or more wool embroidery classes at the next events they will attend or at a private embroidery & sewing evening for your local group - it would be great to see more lovely applique, intarsia,... and all the other possible kinds of wool embroidery in the future!

And last but not least - because of the great support and interest into our first guild project shown by the local guild in Aarnimetsä, the second guild project will be assembled by the local guild in Aarnimetsä under the gentle guidance of the local guild head Lady Fiora. Many thanks to Lady Fiora for her great help.

...and again the artisan who makes the most patches will get a small embroidered gift from the guild head. :)

Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Newsletter December 2010 - Update Project 2010, new Project for 2011: "We have Dragons"!


Dear honourable Lords and Ladies,
dear gentle members of the "Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild" and "-eMail Group"!

Christmas is near, the snow covers most of our beautiful kingdom with a glittering white veil and the cold weather invites most of us to keep on working at our indoor projects... :)
Apropos projects - our first guild project (for 2010) reached its end-stage and our second guild project for 2011 will officially start at the 1st of January - but you can already start to develope your ideas, get your materials and even to start with the embroidery if you like... - but now some words about our first guild project before I let you know more about the next one ;)

Concerning the 1st guild project for 2010 "Coat of Arms Wallhanging for Drachenwald":
The local guild in Nordmark and Fru Renika Rikardsdottir already started to work at the wallhanging - I am very happy to be able to share a posting (and photo) written by Fru Renika about the first steps for the assembling with you:
http://dragonsembroiderers.blogspot.com/2010/12/wallhanging-project.html
All this patches together look really great - I am sure the wallhanging will look awesome!
...btw. if you still have a patch for the wallhanging at home, please send it to Fru Renika (...and if you need her address, just contact me and I'll send you her snail mail address asap).

...and now to the 2nd guild project for 2011 and I really hope you'll like it: "We have Dragons"
The idea for the theme for the first guild project was developed at the guild meeting at the Kingdom University 2009. Long time I was afraid that I wouldn't find a theme that would be as good as this one until the name of an event of the shire of Adamastor catched my eye in the "Dragons Tale" - Here Be Dragons - and immediately I thought: yes, they are right, we indeed have dragons! Many thanks to the shire of Adamastor in South Africa! :)

...and here the details for the project:

The Wallhanging project


Finally, a small report on the progress of our project...
I´ve started to sort through and plan the outlay of the final wallhaning during Kingdom University, with some assistance. Since I knew that more patches were on the way, I haven´t started sewing the patches together, merely sorted them four by four. My plan is to have it assembled as much as possible for Coronation, so that we may present it there. The picture is showing only a small selection of all wonderful patches that have reached me and my happy little mail-box so far.

Little news from Aarnimetsä

Hi everyone!

I had promised to report to Racaire in time for this report, but forgot it
completely - I feel so ashamed :(

So here's little news from Aarnimetsä:

We had a little workshop for the kingdom wallhanging project in Gudgel wars.
However it was extremely hot&humid that week, so not that many people showed
up. In spite of that Aarnimetsäns have been very active in the project: Lady
Petronilla made amazingly many patches, and both Ida Juhanantytär and Amal
binti Hamid Al-Chania have been very active and productive also. Vivat for
them!

We had a local guild meeting in Hukka Sunday meeting in Sebtember. There
were some people new to medieval embroidery who would like to learn more,
and hopefully become guild members soon!

Next big thing in Aarnimetsä will be the Aarnimetsä Academy. There are many
interesting classes, even some on embroidery. Lady Petronilla of London will
teach a class on Opus Anglicanum -embroidery and Lady Lia de Thornegge will
teach Elizabethan metal thread embroideries. That will be very intresting!

I eagerly await the new wallhanging challenge and dragons!

best wishes,

Fiora

Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Newsletter November 2010 & 7th Report


Report of Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Drachenwald
7th report by reporter / guild head: Lady Racaire

Time Period: 16. May 2010 - 15. November 2010 / 2nd report 2010

I am very happy to welcome five new guild members since the last semi-annual report.

Concerning the first guild project "Coat of Arms Wallhanging for Drachenwald":
The guild project successfully started during January. The Nordmark local guild under the gentle guidance of the local Guild head fru Renika volunteered to assemble the wallhanging and started the assembling of the wallhanging at November University 2010. Still artisans all over Drachenwald are working to finish their patches for the Wallhanging and I suppose nearly all finished patches will arrive fru Renika till the end of this year. Besides the great dedication of fru Renika and lady Fiora for this project I would also like to point out that lady Petronilla finished the most patches for the wallhanging project - she received a small gift embroidered by the Guild head for her great work. You can find photos of some of the finished patches at the Dragon's Embroidery Workshop blog ( http://dragonsembroiderers.blogspot.com/search/label/Coat%20of%20Arms%20Wallhanging%20for%20Drachenwald ).

Many heartily thanks to the local guild in Nordmark and Fru Renika, the local guild in Aarnimetsä and lady Fiora, lady Petronilla and all artisans inside and outside the borders of our lovely kingdom who took part in this awesome project. I am sure this wallhanging will be a great decoration for many events in the future and I am very looking forward to see the ultimate result.

This years guild project is going to be assembled by the local guild in Nordmark and will stay with the members of the local guild in Nordmark who will take it to as many events as possible.
We are already planning the guild project for next year, which will be assembled by the local guild in Aarnimetsä under the guidance of lady Fiora and which will stay with the local guild in Aarnimetsä who will also take it to as many events as possible. The next project will include wool as material and dragons - and again a small gift embroidered by the Guild head for the artisan who creates the most patches. More information about the second guild project will be sent out as soon as the details are worked out.

But there are lots of small things that can be made:
* embroidered belt / * small pouches or bags / * garters / * embroidered patches to aplique on garb / * embroidered book cover / * needle case

Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Newsletter October 2010 - Update Wallhanging Project! Token Challenge! Pennsic Giftbasket!


Dear honourable Lords and Ladies,
dear gentle members of the "Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild" and "-eMail Group"!

It's nearly November now and I know that many of you are already preparing to travel to University or send their patches for the "Coat of Arms Wallhanging for Drachenwald" to the Nordmark project-coordinator Fru Renika Rikardsdottir (if you need her address please contact me).

I am very happy that the Nordmark local guild volunteered to start the assembling of the wallhanging at University - unfortunately I am not able to travel to University but I am sure the local Guild head Fru Renika will do a great job and I wish anyone of you who attends University a great event and a lot of fun for the work at the wallhanging!

Once again many thanks to the local guild in Nordmark and Fru Renika Rikardsdottir!

...and also a big thank you to Lady Petronilla, the artisan who finished the most patches for the wallhanging project - I was very happy to see her here in Vienna at the start of October and that I was able to give her a small embroidered needle roll as a 'thank you' for all her lovely patches.
http://dragonsembroiderers.blogspot.com/2010/10/coat-of-arms-wallhanging-for.html

You can find photos of some of the finished patches at the Dragon's Embroidery Workshop blog ( http://dragonsembroiderers.blogspot.com/search/label/Coat%20of%20Arms%20Wallhanging%20for%20Drachenwald ) and I hope I will get more photos of the patches from the artisans to post them at the blog or maybe some artisans will post their patches themselves... :)

...and for anyone who would like to participate in another guild project - we are already working at a new guild project for next year - assembled by another local guild - and for the curious readers of my newsletter: it will include wool as material and dragons! ...and again a small embroidered gift for the artisan who creates the most patches... more about it as soon as we have worked out the details... :)

For anyone who is more comfortable with posting and following the guild news and postings at facebook - we also have a facebook fanpage now - http://www.facebook.com/guild.head.Racaire - and I try to repost all posts from the blog also at the fanpage and even a little bit more... :) The fanpage has already 132 members - SCA members & people interested into the SCA and our Guild who aren't members yet - please participate & contribute - let us show what beautiful things we can create and let us inspire each other! :)

________________ ~*~ ________________

I think the "Token Challenge" and the "Pennsic Giftbasket" are also very important projects therefore I again forward the following text written by Meisterinne Katheryn to you:

_ ~*~ _

Token challange!

If every single recipient of a Drachenwald award made just 2 tokens to be forwarded to future recipients – we would NEVER run out of tokens! However – this is not possible because not everyone has the means to make them.

But hands on your hearts – it IS a lot more fun to get the award with the token to proof you have excelled!

Pennsic giftbasket

Yes, Pennsic 39 has just ended – but next years Pennsic will be HUGE! And Drachenwald has already made itself known for giving the most period and most awesome giftbasket! So next year we should REALLY show them what we can do!

As usual, the items can't be to large since we have to transport them half way around the world.

More patches for the wallhanging :)



Hilkkas lovely patch for Eplaheimr :)

Thank you very much for submitting the photo for the blog :)

Coat of Arms Wallhanging for Drachenwald - the lady who made the most patches...

The lady/lord who made the most patches for the wallhanging is lady Petronilla!!!!!

Guild-project-1_most-patches_Petronillas-gift


Some time ago I decided to give a gift to the lord or lady who finishes the most patches for the wallhanging and Petronilla did an outstanding job by finishing patch after patch after patch ...

Thank you very much Petronilla!!!!

...such a talented embroiderer but she had no needleroll till now... now she is the owner of a small Klosterstich needle roll with a medieval rose :)

More patches for the wallhanging :)

...and finally Hedwigs patches for the wallhanging - one for Drachenwald and one for our shire (Ad Flumen Caerulum) :)

She made a small mistake concerning the size of the patch for our shire but I hope a lady assembling it at University can add two small laurel wreaths and make the whole patch a little bit smaller that it can be used - unfortunately I got the patch yesterday and couldn't change it myself because today during the morning I handed all patches to my friend Petronilla before we started our textile shopping and museum program for today - she is visiting Vienna this weekend and she will mail them with her patches from Germany to Sweden... :)

Many thanks to Petronilla for her help - for mailing them from Germany and all the beautiful patches she made! :)

...and here some photos of Hedwigs patches - first the Drachenwald patch:

Roses Silver Guard token - Token Challenge reminder :)

Rose_chandler

I am very happy that I may share Rose Chandlers lovely embroidered 'Silver Guard' token with you - outstanding work for a 'novice embroiderer' (her own words)!

...and I hope some of you will get inspired by this lovely token and join the Token Challenge of Meisterinne Katheryn Hebenstreitz - don't mind - there is always a need for tokens, items for the 'Queens Basket' or our Pennsic basket and this here is 'just' one of many possible stitches and tokens you can make... :)

Don't forget - anyone can make something! ...and I really would like to point out Meisterinne Katheryns words again:

"If every single recipient of a Drachenwald award
made just 2 tokens to be forwarded to future recipients –
we would NEVER run out of tokens!"

I look forward to see more lovely embroidered tokens! :)

Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Summer Newsletter September 2010 - Update Wallhanging Project! ...


Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - Summer Newsletter September 2010 - Update Wallhanging Project! Token Challenge! Pennsic Giftbasket!

Dear honourable Lords and Ladies,
dear gentle members of the "Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild" and "-eMail Group"!

The summer break for the newsletter was rather long but I am very happy to be able to start with a great information:

Under the guidance of the Nordmark project-coordinator & regional Guild head Fru Renika Rikardsdottir the Nordmark local guild volunteered to start the assembling of the wallhanging at University.

Therefore please forward your patches to Fru Renika Rikardsdottir - she will also attend Civil War in Juneborg in October and can take your patches there if you don't travel to University. For all lords and ladies who won't attend Civil War or University please contact me or Fru Renika and we will find a way - if you already sent your patches to me, please don't worry, I will forward them to Fru Renika.

Again I would like to point out Fru Renikas (Nordmark) and Lady Fioras (Aarnimetsä) great job concerning the "Coat of Arms Wallhanging for Drachenwald" project as well as Lady Petronilla who has finished more patches for the wallhanging than any other volunteer and Mistress Johanna who has kindly donated an embroidery frame to the Aarnimetsä Embroidery Guild which "will be given to the Aarnimetsän broiderer who makes the most of the patches for the wallhanging" - a very nice idea and gift :)

You can find an updated list of the volunteers here: http://dragonsembroiderers.blogspot.com/2010/09/update-project-coat-of-arms-wallhanging.html
Are you travelling to University? ...then you could consider to make a patch for your group or the group of your friends - there is still enough time till University and still so many patches without volunteers...

________________ ~*~ ________________

And now I would like to support two other very important projects - the "Token Challenge" and the "Pennsic Giftbasket" therefore I forward the following text written by Meisterinne Katheryn to you:

_ ~*~ _

Token challange!

If every single recipient of a Drachenwald award made just 2 tokens to be forwarded to future recipients – we would NEVER run out of tokens! However – this is not possible because not everyone has the means to make them.

But hands on your hearts – it IS a lot more fun to get the award with the token to proof you have excelled!

So please take part in the token challange and make your friends, families and even perfect strangers really happy the deay they get recognized for all or their skills and hard work! I have myslef promised to make 3 tokens and as soon as my crazy schedule calms down a bit I will get started! That doesn't mean that you can' start NOW!

If you have any questions or want to send ready made tokens – please contact me so I can give you an address or just some advise along the road!

_ ~*~ _

Pennsic giftbasket

Yes, Pennsic 39 has just ended – but next years Pennsic will be HUGE! And Drachenwald has already made itself known for giving the most period and most awesome giftbasket! So next year we should REALLY show them what we can do!

As usual, the items can't be to large since we have to transport them half way around the world.
But there are lots of small things that can be made:

* embroidered belt
* small pouches or bags
* garters
* embroidered patches to aplique on garb
* embroidered book cover
* needle case

The list can go longer and I bet you all can come up with at least 5 more things that you could make.

At next years Double Wars we will also join forces and work on a project for the giftbasket together during the week!

Please keep an eye on future posts regarding that!

In service
Meisterinne Katheryn

________________ ~*~ ________________

I promise to forward any email for the "Token Challenge" & the "Pennsic Giftbasket" to Meisterinne Katheryn.

Btw. I am going to make some Panache tokens - what are you going to make? :)

...and now back to the normal Guild business:
