it is time once again to announce that this month's Italian Showcase has now been uploaded to the
Realm. I am honoured and pleased to introduce to you Maestra Ginevra Visconti, in a Florentine
style of the 1530s/40s.
I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all of you who took the time to vote in
the inaugural Italian Showcase of the Year Awards. You made the Awards possible. Many people
commented on how difficult it was to choose the top three, let alone the winner, but there had to
be one. Since it was not officially announced at the time, I am pleased to now announce to you
that the winner was Seresina. Danielle and Alaina placed second and third respectively.
Conratulations to them all. And many thanks to the non-placed costumers who not only inspired us
with their lovely work, but helped make the Showcase possible by sharing it with us.
The winners' pages are viewable off the above link.
Thank you to those who sent kind words on the contest, and yes, there *will* be an Italian
Showcase of the Year from now, so long as my volunteers/draftees last! :-)
My apologies to you if you have seen this message more than once.
