This reminds me to mention something I've been thinking about. I
hadn't seen this particular article (which is fascinating!) and it's
clearly about historical needlework, in the sense that we use
"needlework" in the West -- i.e. crafts done with a threaded needle.
But I assume that anyone here who is interested in needlework,
costuming, weaving, spinning or other textile arts probably
subscribes to several other mailing lists besides this one. There are
lots of other lists, and if anyone wants to recommend other lists
that might be of interest, I'd say you should feel free to mention
them here. I think I probably subscribe to more than most, since I
"listen in" on several other kingdoms' needlework lists, for
instance, which (if you're interested) you can find listed here:
The WKneedle list in particular is designed for questions about
historical needlework and resources, and for West Kingdom needlework-
related announcements. (People from anywhere else are of course also
welcome, but this is our purpose.) We wholeheartedly support the
endeavors of other lists, but I think we would appreciate people not
forwarding to this list information that isn't _directly_ about
historical needlework, especially if it *is* readily available on
other widely-read lists.
