      Those who attended Linn's prior classes on Goldwork have been
      requesting more goldwork and so here is the class for you.

      Some of the things to be covered - Broad Plate (strips of gold),
      leather, special application of spangles, cutwork with gold and silk
      and more as time permits. Some time will be spent on how these
      techniques show up at different times in history, but for much of the
      time we will be stitching.

      The teacher -- for those who have not attended one of Linn's classes --
      Linn Skinner is an embroidery historian who teaches and exhibits in
      England and the US. Linn has studied Blackwork, Goldwork, Jacobean
      embroidery and Silk Shading at the Royal School of Needlework, Hampton
      Court, and is a founding member of The New Elizabethans, an
      international group of embroiderers formed in 1998 to further the
      development of classic hand embroidery. For more information on Linn,
      and to see her web-magazine, visit her website:

      The limit for this class is 16 students and the cost is $100 per person
      - As usual Linn is being a friend of the Guild and our special
      embroidery friends and is giving us a big discount from her usual rate
      for this very special class. A minimum of 8 students is needed for this
      class and a final deadline for reaching this number is November 1,

      Space will be on a first come first served basis. Your reservation is
      your check made out to Linn Skinner and sent to me at Robin Berry, PO
      Box 1809, El Granada, CA 94018. If you cancel, a materials fee may be
      assessed. If the class is cancelled, checks will be returned or refunds

      Students should be familiar with the basics of goldwork either from a
      class with Linn or other teacher.

      Location will be at a private home in Half Moon Bay. Class will run
      from 9:30 am until 4:40 pm. A deli lunch will be offered for $5 -
      reservations required.

      As usual most of the materials will be provided. Students should bring
      the following: Bring:
      5-6" hoop - if you don't have one, some will be available for $2
      pencil or blue wash-out pen
      small ruler
      scissors for cutting metallic threads (old embroidery scissors that
      may be dulled by cutting metals)
      embroidery scissors
      sewing thread (any color)
      bees wax if you have it - some may be available
      note taking materials
      lighting and magnification - if you need them

      We hope you will enjoy this special class.
