Re: [WKneedle] Oct Crown Meeting Topic: Apprenticeship Program
- This is "just" an idea.....
original catagories... apprentice,
artisian,journeyman, and master.
Couldn't the new catagories by something like.....
beginner (new to sewing techniques)
artisian (learning newer techniques)
journeyman (on a journey to learn more)
Practitioner (as period Masters had Apprentices)

the initial apprenticeship program and that then changed into our
current program. For that program you did 2 items for each level and
they could be different "categories". So for one level you might do
XS and laid work and then do Blackwork and Beadwork for the 2nd
level. Thus, some people have truly different areas for each level.
So the question is then for those people, how to move forward?
For example, if person A did only one level - XS and Laidwork.
To do the next level, they could now do Counted: 2 Voided and 1
Blackwork -- they need to avoid repeating what they did prior.
For their 3rd level, they could now do Surface: 1 basic, 1 beadwork,
1 raised work; avoiding laid work.
For their 4th level, they could choose any of the 4 that they have
not yet done. For most people in the current program, at this point
they would only have 3 areas to choose from having completed 3 (of 6)
For most this formula will work. If you have a specific question or
want help in working out what areas you still need to cover, please
contact me directly.
I will bring at least one copy of the present status report on the
program with me to October Crown. It will be in the "in" basket for
items to be reviewed for the program.
Curious as to how to join in the program - easy -- go to the website
and look at the various categories and rules (yes eventually we will
have examples of each type of needlework on the site, but for
now...). They are laid out in the Apprenticeship section. Anyone in
the West Kingdom (sorry we don't have the facilities to assist people
out of Kingdom) is welcome to come on the journey of self exploration
of historic needlework. If you want some specific guidance on the
program or on a project - come to the Mentors Corner (post Invocation
to 2 pm in the Guild pavilion at any Crown event) or email me
