Filum Aureum #33 is up!
- Filum Aureum ("The Golden Thread") is back, and issue #33 is now
available as a downloadable PDF in the [WKneedle] group files section.
Featured in this issue is a guest artist, Eowyn Amberdrake from our
sister guild in Caid, with some spectacular photos and an article on
Elizabethan Sweet Bags. Eowyn started a Sweet Bag study group in Caid
and is working on a book on the subject, so we are happy to have her.
The project instructions are for a square pincushion of the type
often found attached to sweet bags, and the issue features seven
*new* patterns for flower sprigs, drafted from unfinished
embroideries preserved in the Carew-Pole Collection. As far as I
know, these have not been published anywhere before this. Because the
patterns are rather small to fit onto the issue page, larger versions
of all 7 patterns are also available as a ZIP file:
This material will also be up on the Guild web page shortly:
