The small projects for the day will be made using a combination of machine and hand stitching. Materials will be provided. Although the plan is for these items to go to gold key, participants with leave with fabric and knowledge to make one project of their own to keep.

Please feel free to join us even if you have never so much as threaded a needle before, it is our utmost hope that you will come away from this with a better understanding and have the foundations to set you on your way to making fabulous garb.The Company of the White Shield welcomes one and all to join us to learn a bit about sewing, and in doing so also help augment Endewearde’s stores of gold key.
