Re: Northern weather for a Norse event!
I currently have the following people down for hoods for the Norse seam treatment class. I will also make as least 10 Dublin hoods and as many wool caps as the scraps allow. Any changes, additions or subtractions need to happen by 2 today.
Blue- hillary (or green)
Black- Mihri, Nichola (or grey)
Grey- Richard (or greenish grey), Marie (or subdued blue)
Brown- Mary, Julie, Gunnar (neutrals)
Green-Leslie (dark or dark red)
Linen black or grey-cory

It is looking like even the weather is going all viking style for

If you want to stay warm (and dry) viking style then make sure you
RSVP for a viking wool hood that you can decorate in the 10am Norse
Seam Treatment Class. Here is an example of one of the wool hoods with
decorative seam treatments-
They are completely sewn, so even though you won't finish the
decorative stitches, you can still wear the hood to keep you warm.
I have wool in black and variety of neutral colors-
. If you want a specific color of wool I don't have, I can see if I
can find it at vogue. If you want one of the wool hoods, please RSVP
For those not wanting a hood, we will have linen Dublin hoods and
Swedish hats to decorate

Some people have asked questions through email and through facebook,
so I figured I would share them here:
1. I am allergic to wool, can I have a linen hood instead?
Yes, though for a viking linen hood (as opposed to the dublin hoods)
are still $20. My linen stock is very low right now and I would need
to pick up linen at Vogue, which runs between $14-20 a yard. Please
let me know by Thursday if you would like a linen hood, and in what
2. I have a viking hood, can I bring that?
Yes. I will have an assortment of embroidery threads, if you have a
specific color (or fiber other than cotton), please bring it with you.
You will want 2-3 skeins of embroidery thread.
3. I have my own wool, can I make my own hood?
YES! But it must be pre-sewn before the class. Here are a few viking
hood patterns- http://www.medieval-baltic.us/skjold.html,
4. What if I just want a hood, but don't want to take the class?
Sure, I am fine with that. However the seams on the hoods won't be
double sewn, so you will want to do that later or bribe someone to it
for you (or decorate the seams for you)
